The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikado with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 30.683 billion Yaorozu-no-tami 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 8,603 trillion yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 280,396 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Mikado Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Yaorozu Blood Tithe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaorozu's national animal is the green pheasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 152,074th in the world and 3,480th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 125 billion Standard Monetary Units.
