The Protectorate of Strawberry Daifuku is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 581 million Strawberry Daifukuans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strawberry Hill. The average income tax rate is 37.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Strawberry Daifukuan economy, worth 19.8 trillion strawberries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 34,063 strawberries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is totally unknown. Strawberry Daifuku's national animal is the pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Strawberry Daifuku is ranked 139,225th in the world and 189th in Vienna for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 48.84 on the Hayek Index.
