The Divine Imperial Realms of Crysanthemum Lowlands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by His Imperial Grace Ryuuhito with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.822 billion Crysanthemum Lowlanders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kochi-shi. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Crysanthemum Lowlandsian economy, worth 350 trillion Golden Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 91,802 Golden Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Water fights now end with thousands dead, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, calling dibs is an unalienable right, and long-wed spouses often regret proposals they made when they were twenty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crysanthemum Lowlands's national animal is the Name-neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Crysanthemum Lowlands is ranked 54,627th in the world and 45th in Japan for Highest Economic Output, with 350 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
