The Neo Taishū no Jōtai of The Neo Japanese States is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Haruka with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 5.707 billion Japanese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Japanese economy, worth 539 trillion Red Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 94,585 Red Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, and the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Neo Japanese States's national animal is the Red Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

The Neo Japanese States is ranked 239,787th in the world and 3rd in The Srivijayan Consortium for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -12.25 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
