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 prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.835 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 5,493 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 240,558 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School uniforms are compulsory, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. 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 289th in the world and 14th in The North Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
