The Occupied Japan of Nippon-Nihon is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Douglas MacArthur with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.026 billion Japanese are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 21.0%.

The powerhouse Japanese economy, worth 191 trillion Japanese Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,582 Japanese Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nippon-Nihon's national animal is the Koi fish, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is Secular State.

Nippon-Nihon is ranked 207,748th in the world and 111th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,037.84 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
