The Empire of Tsukitai is a large, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 92 million Tsukitaians 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 government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Tsukitaian economy, worth 7.32 trillion lunar ijis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 79,546 lunar ijis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Private law firms are unheard of, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tsukitai's national animal is the rabbit.

Tsukitai is ranked 120,015th in the world and 110th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Influential, scoring 41 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
