The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 29.751 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asuka. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Yaorozu economy, worth a remarkable 7,789 trillion yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 261,830 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', and the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yaorozu's national animal is the green pheasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 132nd in the world and 23rd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 287,741 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
