The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 26.074 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, although Law & Order, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 4,740 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 major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 181,794 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the comic book series 'Mikado and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and people talk about things being better when men were men. 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 38,574th in the world and 1,807th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 198,726.71 Standard Monetary Units.
