The Empire of Rising Sakura is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its closed borders, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 469 million Ajianese are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shojiki City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.9%.

The thriving Rising Sakuran economy, worth 45.7 trillion Imperial Ajianese Yen a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 97,469 Imperial Ajianese Yen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 331,560 per year while the poor average 21,121, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

A baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, and all the playground's a stage for Rising Sakuran schoolchildren. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rising Sakura's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rising Sakura is ranked 29,366th in the world and 1,531st in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 833.22 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
