Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 23.166 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 prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 5,741 trillion yen a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 247,841 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People talk about things being better when men were men, Mikado's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate. 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 168,852nd in the world and 8,636th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -83.32 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
