The Kingdom of The Sakura Nippon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Rin with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.66 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 19.2%.

The powerhouse Sakura Nipponian economy, worth 639 trillion Japanese Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,536 Japanese Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Sakura Nippon is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government, Empress Rin can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and psychological disorders are a taboo subject. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sakura Nippon's national animal is the Green pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

The Sakura Nippon is ranked 40,950th in the world and 27th in New West Indies for Most Cultured, scoring 73 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
