The Banzai Federal Republic of Shinnokawa is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Jotarou Watanabe with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.682 billion Shinnokawans 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seikyo. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Shinnokawan economy, worth 336 trillion Shiheis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 125,597 Shiheis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shinnokawa's national animal is the Nikkou Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Biblical Evangelical Christianity.
