Rising Sakura

Population224 million

CurrencyImperial Ajianese Yen

The Empire of Rising Sakura is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 224 million Ajianese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.0%.

The strong Rising Sakuran economy, worth 17.2 trillion Imperial Ajianese Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,723 Imperial Ajianese Yen, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Postcards from Rising Sakuran driving test centres are popular souvenirs, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners, and carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rising Sakura's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rising Sakura is ranked 79,758th in the world and 3,585th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,935.65 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
