The Republic of Nippon Shotou Teikoku is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 35.583 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 medium-sized, 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 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nippon Shotou Teikokuan economy, worth a remarkable 6,497 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 182,612 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students do more community service than homework, the official Nippon Shotou Teikokuan Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and teenagers claim that morning paper rounds are performance art. 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 274,795th in the world and 6,898th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 3.46 Obesity Rate.
