The Republic of Hoshira is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.691 billion Hoshirans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Industry and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The very strong Hoshiran economy, worth 107 trillion Woyens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 63,291 Woyens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 249,804 per year while the poor average 10,863, a ratio of 23.0 to 1.

H-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Hoshira's national animal is the Imperial Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hoshira is ranked 70,353rd in the world and 3rd in Razulica for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,410.81 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
