The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cheerful population of 28.339 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 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 6,614 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 233,390 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, and the Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire. 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 161,338th in the world and 8,509th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.32 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
