The Mechanized State of Kemonomica is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Speaker Hirano Toshiko with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.597 billion Child of Unit-04s enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo-Higashi. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Child of Unit-04 economy, worth 847 trillion Sakura Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 235,569 Sakura Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, at customs baggage gets an x-ray and female travelers get an ultrasound, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kemonomica's national animal is the Kitsune, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Children of the Mother.

Kemonomica is ranked 203,829th in the world and 117th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.51 Crimes Per Hour.
