It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Social Equality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.
Torture is illegal, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, a government program is underway to revitalize Reploid Productions's beaches, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Reploid Productions's national animal is the reploid dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the arpean yen.

Weapons of Mass Destruction:
Limited orbital bombardment capability. With the development of Shogunate space assets, most notably the Hand of God glass 'fleetkiller' battleship, and to a lessert extent the Tenmou class battleship, the Shogunate has obtained a variety of methods for slagging targets from orbit, including gravity-diffusion kinetic weapons and thaumaturgic supercannons.
Military units of note:
"Queens of the Sky": Elite 6-woman fightercraft/aerial stunt team. They fly the RPAF-FX-0 Elite Victory fighters, the few ships of their caliber left after the Dividing War. Originally led by Queen Firefury herself, and originally twenty members strong, they are the best of the best in terms of dogfighting, aerial recon, bombing, etc. They were primarily responsible for the Amahira clan's success in driving the Nekoites out of power, after successfully crippling the Nekoite forces in a 20 vs 300+ aerial battle.
Official Motto: "Fly fast, fight hard, forget mercy"
Unofficial Motto: "SUCK IT DOWN!"
The "Negative Zero Humor Battalion": Formed from the anti-Nekoite
crew. This 1,000-person strong unit is akin to the Mischief Committee
Kitsylvania. They ride modified Bandit cycles, armed with stink bombs
paintballs. They have also been equiped at times with rolls of toilet
and rumor has it that they are willing to use rotten eggs.
Official Motto: "If it's stupid, vandalise it."
Unofficial Motto: "j00 b33n 0wnz0r3d!" or "w3 r0xx0r j00r b0xx0rz!"
(No, we don't know how they speak l33t aloud, either.)
Army motto: "Outgun, outmanuver, outlive"
Unofficial motto:: "We're the world's largest biker gang!"
Razor tank operators' motto: "Zoom, zoom, CRUNCH! So much for that Infinity I30!"
Air Force motto: "With wings of steel and breath of fire, we hunt!"
Unofficial motto: "My butt's asleep."
Navy motto: "Control the seas and stars, and you control the world."
Unofficial motto: "I'M THE KING OF THE WORLD!"

The primary supplier for the Reploid Productions military, this company is also spearheading the effort to recover technology that had been lost in the war. They help fund research and development with the sales of civilian equipment, such as the RPRA-LX01b Bandit Mk-I civilian version, as well as the Harukaze business jets, and dominate the tech industry of the country. They are currently dedicating considerable manpower to the "Archangel Project", following rumors of a major breakthrough in reverse-engineering the gravity-diffusers that enable the old Elite Victory fightercraft to perform so well in atmosphere or space conditions.
Major importer of anime in the country, RP Studios is a government owned media corporation, responsible for much of the country's news broadcasting via the Reploid Productions International News. (RPIN)
Arpean Geological Survey:
Reploid Productions' seismic activity tracking center. Led by Redwing Dragonis (a reploid dragon from the same production line as Secretary of Foreign Affairs Tsume Dragonis), the AGS is the nation's nerve center for geologic research. Most of their time is spent monitoring the Jishin fault line for activity, however, the center also tracks major seismic activity around the world and freely assists in pinpointing the epicenter, depth, and size of major earthquakes that occur elsewhere.
Arpean Historic Society:
Reploid Productions citizens and scientists who persue knowledge of the ancient world. The AHS funds archaelogical digs, special programs, and collects and organizes historic data. The AHS's studies vary widely, from study of ancient technology to study of ancient cultures, and even of ancient 'magics' or other paranormal things that currently fail to have any sort of scientific explanation. Tsunami Drakos (combat reploid dragon from the Drakos production line) and Kiara Alson are reknown within the AHS for their work in the latter field of study.
ALTIMIT Systems, Inc:
Major software developer in Reploid Productions, the company has achieved a nearly Microsoft-level of market domination, with their popular computer operating system, ALTIMIT. While they dominate the country's civilian market, their bids on military and government systems have been repeatedly turned down for undisclosed reasons. (Though rumors say it's because of ALTIMIT is not secure enough for government purposes.)
Arpean Thaumatology Institute:
The Shogunate's 'magitech' research group, under the leadership of Pirika Drakos. The ATI works often with the AHS on research of ancient cultures. The recent revelations in the Valley of Dragons expedition have greatly accelerated their work, and the recent victim of thaumatological energies, Kiara Alson, has been transfered from the AHS to the ATI, along with several of the so-called "Keepers of the Goddess Blades".
