|Leader||the Prime Minister|
|Faith||a major religion|
The Republic of Nippon Shotou Teikoku is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 35.277 billion Nippon Shotous 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Nippon Shotou Teikokuan economy, worth a remarkable 6,440 trillion yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 182,562 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Prime Minister's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, students do more community service than homework, the official Nippon Shotou Teikokuan Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nippon Shotou Teikoku's national animal is the ryu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.
