Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 22.669 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. 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 5,386 trillion yen a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 237,599 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists on vacation find Shinto's scriptures make useful doorstops, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, Asuka spends billions upgrading public transport, and Mikado's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 159,907th in the world and 8,428th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -2374.48 on the Hayek Index.
