The Plastic democracy of Miraihoshi is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lilly Shizukabe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.318 billion Miraihoshians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sukiya. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Miraihoshian economy, worth 337 trillion Plastic yen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,130 Plastic yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Miraihoshi's national animal is the Doki, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Miraihoshi is ranked 22,051st in the world and 25th in Caer Sidi for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,720.64 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
