The Empire of Shin-Hachioji is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.863 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hachioji. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth 600 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 209,618 Hyaku-ens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, all the playground's a stage for Japanese schoolchildren, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. 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 165,131st in the world and 9,564th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -31.24 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
