The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 25.553 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.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 4,190 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 164,011 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 11th in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 99.02 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
