CurrencyImperial Yen

The Rising Sun Pacific Empire of Haruhi Japan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Hirohito with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.43 billion Japanese 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, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,077 trillion Imperial Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 314,077 Imperial Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Haruhi Japan's national animal is the Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

Haruhi Japan is ranked 12,252nd in the world and 4th in The Vincence Empire for Most Secular, with 89.44 Atheism Rate.
