The Shogunate of Azai Separatist is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Shogun Jiraiya with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.363 billion Japanese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 38.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Separatist economy, worth 45.2 trillion 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. 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 33,180 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, Sika Deer that venture near secret military bases are shipped off to prison for espionage, and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Azai Separatist's national animal is the Sika Deer and its national religion is Buddhism.
