The 🌑 Dark Moon Princess 🌑 of Kaguya Hime is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kaguya Houraisan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.075 billion moon princesses 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Tokyo. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient moon princess economy, worth a remarkable 4,476 trillion Moon Rocks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 404,179 Moon Rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, few that venture into government archives are ever seen again, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, and Kaguya Houraisan is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Kaguya Hime's national animal is the Moon Bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperishable Night.

Kaguya Hime is ranked 173,764th in the world and 115th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Pro-Market, scoring -69.44 on the Rand Index.
