The Federation of Hollow Shrine is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ryougi Shiki with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.32 billion Hollow Shrineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mifune. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hollow Shrinean economy, worth 545 trillion ryougis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,350 ryougis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hollow Shrine's national animal is the Illyasviel von Einzbern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ryougi Shiki.

Hollow Shrine is ranked 29,346th in the world and 410th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.19 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
