The Principality of Shikonjima is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Kyouko Yamura with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.858 billion Shikonjimanese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nashinya. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Shikonjimanese economy, worth 559 trillion Ryous a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,119 Ryous, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is totally unknown. Shikonjima's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of the Four Souls.

Shikonjima is ranked 134,195th in the world and 4,203rd in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 135.03 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
