Faitha major religion


The Republic of Nippon Shotou Teikoku is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.446 billion Nippon Shotous 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nippon Shotou Teikokuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,872 trillion yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,762 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, third world countries are rich in "I Love Tokyo" t-shirts, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nippon Shotou Teikoku's national animal is the ryu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Nippon Shotou Teikoku is ranked 63,426th in the world and 2,107th in Lazarus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,011.74 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
