The Empire of TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHON is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Takahito with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.352 billion TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHONians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 41.5%.

The frighteningly efficient TENNOHEIKA BANZAI NIHONian economy, worth 485 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 206,423 ENS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 743,792 per year while the poor average 40,965, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

The year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", crimes are difficult to stop as most of the police force is stuck in traffic, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. 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 3,658th in the world and 24th in The Black Hawks for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 743,792.51 Standard Monetary Units.
