The Republic of Takumai is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 249 million Takumaians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.8%.

The strong Takumaian economy, worth 13.9 trillion Yen a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 55,807 Yen, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Takumai's national animal is the Tech Deck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Takumai is ranked 195,075th in the world and 5,351st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 25.4 billion Standard Monetary Units.
