Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Shin Ezo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Enomoto Takeaki with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.259 billion Shin Ezoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakodate. The average income tax rate is 31.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Shin Ezoan economy, worth 252 trillion Ryoes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,563 Ryoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

People caught mistreating Shin Ezo's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, foreign musicians that Enomoto Takeaki dislikes are turned away at the border, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shin Ezo's national animal is the Koi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Shin Ezo is ranked 116,573rd in the world and 5,765th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.2 Weapons Per Person.
