The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikado with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 36.38 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized 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 an astonishing 13,417 trillion Yaorozu 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 and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 368,822 Yaorozu yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Art criticism in Yaorozu is scathingly destructive, billions of Yaorozu yen are spent to take high-quality photos of the Green Pheasant Nebula, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping. 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 293,481st in the world and 7,118th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -39.92 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
