The Rising Sun Pacific Empire of Haruhi Japan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Hirohito with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.547 billion Japanese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,126 trillion Imperial Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 317,573 Imperial Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", and economists claim no news is good news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haruhi Japan's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Shinto.

Haruhi Japan is ranked 218,242nd in the world and 93rd in The Vincence Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 6.85 Obesity Rate.
