The Empire of Meiji is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 263 million Meijians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Meijian economy, worth 24.0 trillion YEN a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 91,343 YEN, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The term "Native Meijian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Meiji's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Meiji is ranked 32,311th in the world and 30th in APSIA for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,292.04 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
