The Eastern Paradise of ZUN is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Reimu Hakurei with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.069 billion youkai enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakurei Shrine. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming youkai economy, worth 571 trillion beers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 94,120 beers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, Reimu Hakurei's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ZUN's national animal is the yukkuri, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Holy Order of the Armpit.

ZUN is ranked 10,308th in the world and 619th in Osiris for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 85.86 Effective Tax Rate.
