The Democratic Republic of -The Japanese Democratic Republic- is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Nobuo Asano with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.022 billion North Japanese are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapporo. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong North Japanese economy, worth 88.3 trillion North Japanese yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 86,438 North Japanese yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -The Japanese Democratic Republic-'s national animal is the Ezo brown bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

-The Japanese Democratic Republic- is ranked 64,933rd in the world and 2,598th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,052.98 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
