The Melancholic Disaster of Haruhi Japan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Keiko Tojo with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory vegetarianism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.565 billion Japanese are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 79.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 3,555 trillion imperial yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 469,936 imperial yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Japanese are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, citizens volunteer for tax audits to avoid the 80-page Practical Assessment Survey Tool On Religions, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haruhi Japan's national animal is the green pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shintoism.

Haruhi Japan is ranked 306,728th in the world and 37th in The Vincence Empire for Most Politically Free, scoring 1.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
