The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful population of 32.134 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, Administration, and Law & Order. 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 10,011 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 311,566 Yaorozu yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation burns bridges with neighbours who burn their rainforest, vacationing Yaorozu-no-tami expect to be treated as royalty, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 435th in the world and 17th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 21,087.02 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
