The Empire of Rising Sakura is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 664 million Ajianese 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shojiki City. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ajianese economy, worth 64.7 trillion Imperial Ajianese Yen 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. 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 97,512 Imperial Ajianese Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the doctor has cold hands, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rising Sakura's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rising Sakura is ranked 3,712th in the world and 176th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 11,637.65 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
