The Rising Sun's Land of Yaorozu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikado with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 34.929 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 an astonishing 12,358 trillion Yaorozu 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 353,806 Yaorozu yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by Mikado to be highly-advanced toilet factories, builders across Yaorozu are blocked up with orders for new public loos, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinto.

Yaorozu is ranked 16th in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 1,274 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
