The Empire of Japan of Philanialle is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Naruhito with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ritual sacrifices, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.967 billion Japanese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, liberal 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 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,846 trillion Yen a year, is quite specialized and 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 168,412 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and Japanese have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philanialle's national animal is the Japanese Macaque, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shintō.

Philanialle is ranked 97,410th in the world and 127th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,340.43 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
