The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 33.677 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth an astonishing 11,163 trillion Yaorozu yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 331,482 Yaorozu yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, and urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaorozu's national animal is the green pheasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 298th in the world and 11th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 50,971.3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
