Thousand Cherry Blossoms

Population2.828 billion


The Armed Republic of Thousand Cherry Blossoms is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Spider population. The hard-nosed population of 2.828 billion Thousand Cherry Blossomsians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 25.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Thousand Cherry Blossomsian economy, worth 110 trillion Platinums a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,049 Platinums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thousand Cherry Blossoms's national animal is the Spider.

Thousand Cherry Blossoms is ranked 39,363rd in the world and 1,048th in Artificial Solar System for Most Average, scoring 46 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
