The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful population of 25.179 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 3,770 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 149,747 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. 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 153,036th in the world and 7,679th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -104.4 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
