The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 30.994 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, Law & Order, and Administration. 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 a remarkable 8,880 trillion Yaorozu golds 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. Average income is an amazing 286,531 Yaorozu golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Yaorozu's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, most towns have their Mikado High School located on Mikado Street, pocket dialling is a criminal offence, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. 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 ghost, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 2nd in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 102.17 on the Human Development Index.
