The Banzai Federal Republic of Shinnokawa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jotarou Watanabe with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, aversion to nipples, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.768 billion Shinnokawans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taihou City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Shinnokawan economy, worth 192 trillion Shiheis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,921 Shiheis, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

The new biography of President Jotarou Watanabe is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb", the government pours millions of Shiheis into rehabilitation programs annually, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Shiheis each year, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shinnokawa's national animal is the Nikkou Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Shinnokawa is ranked 146,241st in the world and 5,741st in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.56 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
