Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Shin-Hachioji is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 718 million 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hachioji. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth 84.7 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, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 118,005 Hyaku-ens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, Maxtopians dominate the nation's military hierarchy, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime is totally unknown. Shin-Hachioji's national animal is the green pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shin-Hachioji is ranked 164,696th in the world and 8,787th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -22.92 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
