To curtail Japan's overweight population, the Japanese health ministry
recently mandated that all waistlines among its 56 million workers
over age 40 be below “regulation size” of 33.5 inches (for men). Any
company failing to bring its employees’ weight under control--as well
as the weights of their family members--will be fined up to 10% of its
earnings by the government.
