The Fiefdom of Yuki No Shima is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 254 million Matsumaes 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 Administration, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shinmori. The average income tax rate is 49.4%.
The Matsumae economy, worth 12.5 trillion Yen a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,148 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens have never heard foreign radio, prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, jumping in puddles after rainstorms has become an indoor activity, and Yuki No Shima has designated Shinmori as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuki No Shima's national animal is the Tanuki, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
