Landscape and climate
Dayashina is a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy in which the Emperor has very limited power. As a ceremonial figurehead, he is defined by the constitution to be "the symbol of the State and of the unity of the people". Executive power is wielded chiefly by the Prime Minister and his cabinet. Dayashina's system of government is largely based on the Anglian System, which is mostly attributed to the allied occupation of Dayashina after the Pan Septentrion War.
Dayashina's legislative body is the National Diet, seated in the nation's capital, Nakazara. The body is headed by a prime minister, who is the official head of government. Executive power is carried out by the prime minister and their cabinet, consisting most commonly of people chosen from the ranks of prime minister's party. Dayashina is divided into hundreds of consistuencies, each of which elects a member of parliament by plurality. General elections are called every five years.
The Dayashinese Conservative Party (DCP), Dayashinese Liberal-Democratic Party (DLDP), and Dayashinese Central Party (DCeP) have, in modern times, been Dayashina's top three political parties. The DLP managed to maintain control of the House up until the election of Genki Oda (DCP) in 1990, but held it again for another 25 years until the election of Daichi Noru (DCP) in 2015. Other parties of note include the Meng National Party, Rising Sun Party, and Classical Traditionalist Party.
Dayashina is divided into 14 prefectures, with one special prefecture in Sakurajima. Each prefecture has it's own governor, legislature, and administrative bureaucracy, and is further divided by cities and towns. In the case of Sakurajima, there exists a "provisional president" and a Septentrion League-led bureaucracy. The Republic of Dayashina has exclusive basing rights on the island, and is vying for the island to be repatriated into it's borders immediately following the official end of the Pan-Septentrion War war crimes trials.
Dayashina also maintains overseas territories which are incorporated into the system of the republic. Ryujima, Sora, Shogazu, and Aijuku are all fully dependent territories of the Republic of Dayashina and are governed under the Dayashinese administrative system. Dayashina also maintains one overseas dependency in Aozorajima, which retains it's own system of governance, but is represented in the National Diet, unlike Sakurajima.
Dayashina's capital and most populous prefecture is Nakazara, and is also noted as the largest city in the world by population and close to the largest in the world by landmass. It is part of the Central Belt and is the centre of a gradually forming megalopolis, linking together central Dayashinese cities, including Orajima, Nasai, Kojima, and Kanegawa. The Northern Belt consists of Daishi, Shizuna, Seto, Yokogato, and Masada. The Southern Belt includes Sakke, Omuri, Takena, and Izokara. Other smaller "belts" are popping up scattered across the landscape, but the Northern, Central, and Southern Belts are considered the "three cores" of Dayashina's population.
Dayashina has diplomatic relations with most independent nations and has been a member of the Septentrion League since the 1950s. Dayashina is a member of the Trans-Hemithean Economics and Trade Organisation (THETA). The nation has extremely close relations with Tir Glas, having signed a number of mutual defence and economic agreements together. Additionally, Dayashina has operated as a critical gateway to Glasic contact with Menghe and has fostered excellent diplomatic relations between the three Helian states. Dayashina is a founding state of the Helian Ocean Prosperity Edict (HOPE), and Nakazara serves as a massive diplomatic hub for Hemithea, Vinya, and Meridia.
Dayashina also maintains close ties with Anglia. Following the defeat of the Imperial Dayashina in the Pan-Septentrion War, Dayashina has maintained close economic, cultural, and military ties with Anglia in a joint venture to protect shared values and interests. Dayashina and Anglia remain as one of the few friendly diplomatic links between Hemithea and Casaterra, and the two have partook the only instances of inter-alliance military cooperation since the Pan-Septentrion War.
While Dayashina has been able to resolve all of it's territorial disputes with Menghe, tensions have most recently erupted with Maracaibo, with Dayashinese Prime Minister Daichi Noru and Maracaiban President George Robert Kerman constantly at a crossroads. Kerman has been known to spill anti-Dayashina rhetoric and serves to constantly remind the world of the crimes of Imperial Dayashina during the PSW, including the Genocide of Maracaibo. Noru has expressed interest in "quelling Maracaiban aggression in Meridia and elsewhere", which directly conflicts with the Maracaiban Meridian Doctrine.
Dayashina is very cautious in it's mentioning of the Pan-Septentrion War, given the historical stigma associated with the exploits and crimes of the Empire during the time. Once spanning from Khalistan to Inishmore, countless people across that area, innocent and military, died as a result of the belligerent actions of the Empire. The Dayashinese Liberal Democratic Party (DLDP) has criticised Prime Minister Noru for rekindling a negative view on Dayashina by the foreign audience, drawing equivalence between the contemporary opulence of the Dayashinese military and PSW-era nationalism. The Republic of Dayashina, following the end of the PSW, issued an official apology for "all war-crimes" during the war, but has yet to and likely will not issue an apology for entering the war, with non-partisan officials citing pre-war historical context.
Dayashina maintains one of the largest military budgets of any country in the world. The country's military (Republic of Dayashina Defence Forces - RDDF), as reformed from remnants of the Imperial Dayashinese Armed Forces (IDAF) by the allies, is responsible for the defence of Dayashina and it's overseas territories. Additionally, it is arbitrarily responsible for the "maintenance of stability" in Meridia and partly the Helian Ocean. Reputed defence analysis surveys commonly rank Dayashina's military as one of the most powerful and technologically advanced in the world, behind, boasting the third largest navy and air force
The military is governed by the Ministry of Defence, and primarily consists of the Republic of Dayashina Army (RDA), the Republic of Dayashina Navy (RDN), and the Republic of Dayashina Air Force (RDAF). The RDDF is a regular participant in Grand Alliance exercises, and conducts an extensive amount of drills with Tir Glas and Menghe annually. The RDDF was first deployed as a part of a joint-GA task force during the Hanhae War of 1950, in which it reported general success. More recently, the RDDF deployed independently to form a joint task force with Anglia during the Invasion of Kouraki (1991). Elements of the RDDF deployed to Kouraki once again in 2016 in response to the Takena Metro Bombings, in a successful operation to depose terrorist leaders in Kouraki. A massive RDDF contingent deployed into Vyzhva in 2019, where the first combat deployments of the Mosquito where undertaken by a joint Glaso-Dayashinese naval force.
RDDF maintains a number of bases outside of the Dayashinese homeland. It operates bases in Hanhae, Sora, Shogazu, Aozorajima, FRNP, and Shijuku. Additionally, it operates in numerous joint bases with the Tir Glas, Rajamaa, and other states across the world. The RDDF maintains about 415,000 total personnel, 307,000 of which are active and 108,000 of which are in reserve. Conscription is restricted in "peacetime", but the government retains the right to vote on whether to re-enact a system of conscription for the RDDF in "wartime". Dayashina's defence budget spiked to $177.6 billion with the election of Noru, settling at 3.82% of the national GDP, which is the highest it has been since the Pan-Septentrion War.
Recent tensions with Maracaibo and other Casaterran states, as well as the election of Prime Minister Daichi Noru in 2015 have sparked the debate over the relation of the Dayashinese armed forces and Dayashinese society, and it's contributions to the revival of nationalism and radicalism in Dayashina.
Dayashina's industrial sector makes up for roughly a quarter of Dayashina's GDP. Dayashina's major industries are electronics, automobiles, shipbuilding, aerospace, steel, chemicals, and arms. Companies the likes of Kawasaki, Soritomo, and Mitsuna are all heavy industry entities sourcing from Dayashina. Other examples include Kaishiruka, Hiuza, Dayashina Steel, and Niishina Chemical.
Dayashina attracted 20 million foreign tourists in 2015, 23 million in 2016, and 28 million in 2017. Tourism is one of Dayashina's most important industries, drawing in dozens of millions of people in every year. It has seen a meteoric increase in tourism since the establishment of the Dayashinese Tourism Agency in 2010, and this is also partly associated with the contemporary growth in GDP per capita in Hemithean and Meridian states, with more people now having the expendable money to visit Dayashina other than Casaterrans or Vinyans. Dayashina hopes to draw in 40 million tourists by 2020, and upwards of 60 millions in 2030.
Dayashina is home to a number of Septentrion League Heritage sites, including castles and other relics from the nation's ancient and feudal periods. Popular destinations include Dayashina's largest cities such as Nakazara and Takena, feudal castles, the traditional city of Hokogata, and the various resorts set up in Dayashina's overseas territories, namely in Aijuku, Sora, and Aozorajima.
Dayashina's service sector accounts for a massive amount of Dayashina's economic output. Financing, real estate, retail, transportation, telecommunications, and other technologies are all major in Dayashina, with many companies listed as some of the largest in the world sourcing from the nation. Dayacom, Hamatsura Group, Sorusan, Norutaka Group, Imperial Rail, and Rozukyo International are all companies listed as some of the largest in the world sourcing from the Dayashinese service industries.
Dayashina has a massive fishing industry and ranks consistently high in the world for tonnage of fish caught every year. It maintains one of the world's largest fishing fleets and accounts for about 16% of the world's total catches.

Dayashinese culture, in its ancient origins, has evolved greatly since its conception. Contemporary Dayashinese culture combines traditional elements with influences from Tir Glas and Anglia. Traditional Dayashinese arts include various metalworks such as swords, and other hand crafts including textiles and ceramics. Various performances of dance and drama remain relevant in contemporary Dayashinese culture, as well as various staples of the old culture such as the martial arts. The Republic of Dayashina has enacted various systems for the protection and preservation of both tangible and intangible elements of the traditional culture, and contemporary developments have seen a sweeping resurgence in the interest in Dayashinese tradition, with particular focus on practices undertaken both within the Yamazaki Shogunate and Empire of Dayashina.
