The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cheerful population of 26.8 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 5,457 trillion 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 203,632 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Yaorozu Blood Tithe, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold-plated handcuffs. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 12th in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 99.02 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
