Rising Sakura

Population501 million

CapitalShojiki City

CurrencyImperial Ajianese Yen

The Empire of Rising Sakura is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 501 million Ajianese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shojiki City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.3%.

The very strong Rising Sakuran economy, worth 49.8 trillion Imperial Ajianese Yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 99,307 Imperial Ajianese Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 327,812 per year while the poor average 22,507, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

If they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, native tribes have been driven to extinction by hunting, and ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rising Sakura's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rising Sakura is ranked 23,330th in the world and 948th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 54.66 Whatever.
