Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cheerful population of 28.764 billion Yaorozu-no-tami are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, 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 6,963 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 242,103 yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 184,035th in the world and 9,209th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -487 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
