The Kingdom of Japanie is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 352 million Germanese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Germanese economy, worth 27.1 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 77,018 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Patriots insist that size does matter, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Tokyo Natural History Museum, the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Japanie's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Japanie is ranked 101,812th in the world and 1,011th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 820.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
