The Empire of Shin-Hachioji is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hirotaka Kawahara with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.036 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, outspoken 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth 144 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 139,659 Hyaku-ens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 26,079th in the world and 1,336th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
