The Rising Sun Pacific Empire of Haruhi Japan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Haruhi with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.901 billion Japanese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth 457 trillion Imperial Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 240,644 Imperial Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 839,954 per year while the poor average 50,150, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

It's best to say "yes" if the arbiter asks "what are you, a moron?", abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, Empress Haruhi's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, and imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment. 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 King Squid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Shintoism.

Haruhi Japan is ranked 190,930th in the world and 451st in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.47 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
