The Empire of Mishima Financial Group is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 415 million Mishima Financial Groupians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 56.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mishima Financial Groupian economy, worth 49.0 trillion ₮ekkoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,058 ₮ekkoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, there's no escape from the rule of law... or police brutality, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mishima Financial Group's national animal is the Kuma, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Mishima Financial Group is ranked 14,347th in the world and 8th in Liberal Democratic Union for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.96 Whatever.
