The Empire of Rising Sakura is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Arashi with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.481 billion 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shojiki City. The average income tax rate is 77.8%.

The all-consuming Ajianese economy, worth 181 trillion Imperial Ajianese Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 122,779 Imperial Ajianese Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. 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 243,727th in the world and 9,635th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -27 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
