The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful population of 30.135 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 a remarkable 8,107 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 269,047 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. 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 231,147th in the world and 10,650th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -111.05 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
