The Raging Japanese God of Tengaku is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The quiet, industrious population of 5.139 billion Tengakuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Tengakuan economy, worth 217 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,391 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tengaku's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tengaku is ranked 27,985th in the world and 4th in Alicross Compact for Most Primitive, scoring 69.42 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
