Country ProfileI. IntroductionPurposeThe country I decided to choose was Japan; this country is the tenth-largest country in theworld was a high population of 127.3 million people (Global Sherpa, 2020). They are alsoknown for the second most exceptional economy for beyond 40 years, and Tokyo being theircapital city (Global Sherpa, 2020). They are very known for having a robust cultural structure,great business powers, being technical savvy, with mesmerizing economic control. Theirpopulation ethnic group mostly contains Japanese, but also a very minimal population ofKoreans and Chinese (Global Sherpa, 2020). They speak a variety of languages from Japanese,Kansai, Osaka, Kyoto, Tohoku, and English (Global Sherpa, 2020). Japan also has the longestlife expectancy in the world from life expectancy at birth of 83.2 years (Global Sherpa, 2020).Their healthcare system consists of Universal Statutory Health Insurance System, which isfollowed by national and local governments and is mandated by law (Ryozo Matsuda, 2020). Thereason why I chose to write about Japan is that I have always been interested in their differentcultural beliefs. Such as their various temples and their beliefs in Buddha. Also, I am fascinatedby their lucky charms and prayers, which give you good fortune, success, and money.

Theirhealth care system based on generating preventative measures to keep people healthy. They offera lot of prescreening test and have a lot of programs rolled out to help out their citizens(International, 2020). Japan doctors have sub-specialties which help patients to have the abilityto go directly to any doctor that they need for their required health issue (International, 2020).2

But if you do not have SHI, then the rest of the population is covered underthe National Health Insurance, which is paid out based on your source of income (International,2020). In Japan, the government pays for about 70% of healthcare for its citizens, and thecitizens pay the remaining balance of 30% (International, 2020).

Theirgovernment is divided by the same three branches as other states, such as legislative, executive,and judicial (Wikipedia, 2020).
