The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 26.459 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 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 5,150 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 194,669 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", people caught mistreating Yaorozu's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested. 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 944th in the world and 43rd in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 15,827.92 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
