The Banzai Federal Republic of Shinnokawa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jotarou Watanabe with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.782 billion Shinnokawans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taihou City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.3%.

The all-consuming Shinnokawan economy, worth 194 trillion Shiheis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 109,243 Shiheis, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

President Jotarou Watanabe's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shinnokawa's national animal is the Nikkou Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Shinnokawa is ranked 115,896th in the world and 4,048th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 16.11 Atheism Rate.
