The Empire of Shin-Hachioji is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hirotaka Kawahara with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.481 billion Japanese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hachioji. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth 239 trillion Hyaku-ens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 161,865 Hyaku-ens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, calling dibs is an unalienable right, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime is totally unknown. Shin-Hachioji's national animal is the green pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Shin-Hachioji is ranked 4,446th in the world and 202nd in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 129.2 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
