Synopsis of Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki
After the death of his grandfather, 19-year-old aspiring civil servant Kazuya Souma is left alone with no one to call family. Out of nowhere, he is transported to the Kingdom of Elfrieden, a sick little country in another world, to be a “hero”. An ongoing war with the demon army has put the entire world in danger, and Kazuya was summoned to aid in the conflict as an offering from Elfrieden to her allies. Unhappy to be used as a tribute, Kazuya decides to help the kingdom revive its failing economy, not through adventure or war, but through administrative reform. Suddenly declared king of Elfrieden and promised to the princess, the “royal hero” Kazuya sets out to gather a group of talented citizens to help him in his bureaucratic battles to get the kingdom back to work.
