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 notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.652 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakodate. The average income tax rate is 49.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shin Ezoan economy, worth 318 trillion Ryoes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,197 Ryoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, chickens roam the streets freely, and tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers. 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 26,348th in the world and 672nd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 450.9007878122 Days.
