Based on the manga Teiichi no kuni by Usamaru Furuya, this spectacular teen comedy follows Teiichi Akaba, a student at a prestigious private male high school known for producing important politicians and bureaucrats. To achieve his dream of eventually becoming prime minister of his own empire, Teiichi must first be elected student council president, a position that promises special privileges and a better shot at political opportunities after graduation. The race for the presidency rapidly escalates to hilarious extremes of bribery, sabotage, and scandal.
