Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.304 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. 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 5,110 trillion yen a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 229,138 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Yaorozu officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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 96,094th in the world and 2,751st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 142 billion Standard Monetary Units.
