The Plastic democracy of Miraihoshi is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lilly Shizukabe with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.108 billion Miraihoshians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sukiya. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miraihoshian economy, worth 322 trillion Plastic yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,523 Plastic yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miraihoshi's national animal is the Doki, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Miraihoshi is ranked 100,984th in the world and 76th in Caer Sidi for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
