The Empire of Shin-Hachioji is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.162 billion Japanese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shin-Hachioji. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,045 trillion Hyaku-ens 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 251,216 Hyaku-ens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, Shin-Hachioji's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, religious education is a new government priority, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown. Shin-Hachioji's national animal is the green pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Shin-Hachioji is ranked 443rd in the world and 27th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.33 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
