The Empire of TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHON is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Takahito with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.4 billion TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHONians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.0%.

The frighteningly efficient TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHONian economy, worth 240 trillion ENS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 171,626 ENS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 629,716 per year while the poor average 33,110, a ratio of 19.0 to 1.

Drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHON's national animal is the Fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Shintoism.

TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHON is ranked 4,883rd in the world and 19th in The Black Hawks for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,103.89 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
