The Republic of Nippon Shotou Teikoku is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.145 billion Nippon Shotous love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, 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 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nippon Shotou Teikokuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,976 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 191,900 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, third world countries are rich in "I Love Tokyo" t-shirts, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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.

Nippon Shotou Teikoku is ranked 80,180th in the world and 3,597th in Lazarus for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 39.21 Effective Tax Rate.
