The Empire of Kawagishi is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Matsuhito with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 3.587 billion Kawagishians 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kawagishian economy, worth 170 trillion yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,606 yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, airport security is provided by private companies, and referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population. Crime is totally unknown. Kawagishi's national animal is the green pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kawagishi is ranked 46,301st in the world and 17th in Geopolity for Most Devout, with 564.5 Prayers Per Hour.
