The Empire of Shin-Mutsu is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 953 million Sayuri's Pets are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.5%.

The thriving Shin-Mutsuan economy, worth 64.6 trillion New Marks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 67,778 New Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 207,682 per year while the poor average 17,122, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Main battle tanks stalk the woods of Shin-Mutsu in search of Humans, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, and women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shin-Mutsu's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shin-Mutsu is ranked 230,175th in the world and 3rd in Shin Mutsu for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.9 Tourists Per Hour.
