The Empire of TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHON is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Takahito with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.4 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, pro-business, 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 43.4%.

The frighteningly efficient TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHONian economy, worth 713 trillion ENS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 209,765 ENS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 809,615 per year while the poor average 37,338, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHONians any less frightened, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, a common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. 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 210,671st in the world and 399th in The Black Hawks for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 15.28 Tourists Per Hour.
