The Empire of Japan of Philanialle is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Akihito with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.652 billion Japaneses hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,590 trillion Japanese Yen s a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,871 Japanese Yen s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Japanese flag, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and baiting is a national sport. Crime is totally unknown. Philanialle's national animal is the Green Pheasant and Carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Shintō.

Philanialle is ranked 5,823rd in the world and 20th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Developed, scoring 92.86 on the Human Development Index.
