The Empire of Yamataiko is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Naruhito with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.489 billion Yamataikoans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The powerhouse Yamataikoan economy, worth 326 trillion E-Yens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 93,607 E-Yens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 308,488 per year while the poor average 21,267, a ratio of 14.5 to 1.

Bris parties are all the rage, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Yamataiko's national animal is the Green pheasant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shintoism.

Yamataiko is ranked 122,908th in the world and 35th in Union Mundial for Most Extreme, scoring 15.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
