Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Shin Ezo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Enomoto Takeaki with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 2.988 billion Shin Ezoans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakodate. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shin Ezoan economy, worth 366 trillion Ryoes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,490 Ryoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crackheads chase drug-loaded drones in hopes of a lucky drop, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. 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 8,854th in the world and 494th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 86.3 on the Human Development Index.
