The Protectorate of X-Japan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 263 million X-Japanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant X-Japanian economy, worth 3.63 trillion ergerges 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, Soda Sales, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 13,797 ergerges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, and the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. X-Japan's national animal is the ergergerg, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

X-Japan is ranked 137,346th in the world and 71st in 555 for Highest Economic Output, with 3.63 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
