The Republic of of Hashitoro is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rokuro Sanford with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.108 billion Hashitoroites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hashitoro City. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hashitoroan economy, worth 470 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 92,018 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and supervisors in Hashitoro commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hashitoro's national animal is the Green Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hashitoro is ranked 13,047th in the world and 780th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.33 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
