The Democratic People's Republic of North Japan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.83 billion North Japanese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hokutou-Ko. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving North Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,516 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 102,236 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Japan's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State-Shintoism.

North Japan is ranked 10,046th in the world and 230th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 9,483.18 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
