I have assigned 198 countries a number. The countries I've chosen are the 193 members of the UN plus those recognised by at least 20 UN members. Each week I will pick a country using a random number generator and we will discuss that country.




Country of the Week for week 23: Japan

Population: 130M

Finally, a really relevant country.

Third largest GDP, I believe.

^ your sentence means nothing...

Edit: good you corrected yourself, but you could at least warn us about the change, since I was specifically talking about your original sentence.

One of the most powerful countries in the world. Unfortunately, everyone under 35 there seems to be a weirdo (and loads over 35 are racist empiricists).

It's Wappanese that are the weird ones, younger Japanese are usually pretty responsible and hard working.

They have a new right-wing party called the Happiness Realization Party, that's basically the Tea-Party of East Asia.

On the other hand they have an amazing education system. Incredible talent in biomedical research and technology development.

Japan is amazing in science but I see South Korea surpassing them in the near future. Maybe even Hong Kong and Singapore too

I'm surprised no one's bought up a great piece of engineering, the Japanese bullet trains. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkansen

No South Korea is too distracted by North Korea and Kpop xD.

I actually see a huge brain drain coming for South Korean talent...especially in the STEM fields if Congress increases the number of H1B visas. Hong Kong is pretty amazing...its like the London of East Asia considering its an International City with huge upside.

everything is expensive in Tokyo.
Also, their education system is basically reliant on cultural pressure(you f*ck up, you die), and the fact that there are high-stakes tests to determine what high school and college you get into.

It works and you can't doubt the results. You want to turn around the crap education system in America? Move towards a cultural environment that promotes hard work and educational success. Kids need to learn to understand the in the 21st century its not just rainbows and smiley face emojis. Success is tough.

There should be saying: "If you want to make something as perfect as possible, entrust that to Japan."
This goes for cars, swords, preparing and drinking tea, zen-buddhism, code of honor, electronics, gardening and so on ...

Well, Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world. And South Korea, which usually ranks in top 2 in international tests, has second highest.

Japan such a small nation (in terms of size) but a giant economically and culturally speaking, with a strong avant-garde spirit, pioneering in many fields.
