The New United Galactic Republic of Higher Japan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Entity 0 with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.457 billion Higher Japanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hoth. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Higher Japanian economy, worth 953 trillion yen a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 174,731 yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, parents are legally not allowed to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Higher Japan's national animal is the golden crowned sparrow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Tarotism.

Higher Japan is ranked 6,478th in the world and 4th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Smartest Citizens, with 106.73 Quips Per Hour.
