The Rising Sun Nation of Greater Jes New Islands is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Hiro ten'nō with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.948 billion Jesians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shihon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Jesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,545 trillion Yans 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 a breathtaking 557,400 Yans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,475,004 per year while the poor average 78,264, a ratio of 31.6 to 1.

The sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Greater Jes New Islands's national animal is the Kraken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greater Jes New Islands is ranked 403rd in the world and 1st in Aros Elyium for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 49,247.12 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
