The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 29.314 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 7,488 trillion yen 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 major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 255,448 yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

They who do not work shall not eat, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. 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 green pheasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 188,712th in the world and 8,809th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.22 on the Rand Index.
