The Federal Republic of Byakko is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 600 million Byakkans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 15.3%.

The strong Byakkan economy, worth 40.6 trillion Byakkan Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 67,680 Byakkan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Comas Archipelago, and a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byakko's national animal is the Pelican, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Byakko is ranked 101,672nd in the world and 2nd in Comas Archipelago for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 757 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
