The Republic of Nippon Shotou Teikoku is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 28.48 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 Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 29.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nippon Shotou Teikokuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,518 trillion yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,778 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, billions of yen are spent to take high-quality photos of the Ryu Nebula, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Nippon Shotou Teikoku's border. 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 131,428th in the world and 4,416th in Lazarus for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.78 Kickbacks Per Hour.
