The Buddhist Socialist Republic of Byakuren is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Byakuren Hijiri with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.944 billion Byakurenites 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 Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tahara. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Byakurenite economy, worth a remarkable 2,914 trillion Japanese 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 209,039 Japanese Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, re-education centers are being added to most prisons, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Japanese Yen battlesuits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byakuren's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pure Land Buddhism.

Byakuren is ranked 4,638th in the world and 99th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 2,324.66517888 Days.
