The Fiefdom of Xogunato Tokugawa is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Tokugawa Tsunenari with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 910 million Japaneses are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edo and Kyoto. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Japanese economy, worth 103 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,526 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has to take out its Visa to eliminate visas, foreign leaders who don't applaud Tokugawa Tsunenari's speeches are regarded as enemies of Xogunato Tokugawa, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xogunato Tokugawa's national animal is the Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Xogunato Tokugawa is ranked 241,585th in the world and 9,082nd in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 12.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
