About 'The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt'

The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt (Hey, How About Treason?) (Japanese: 天才王子の赤字国家再生術〜そうだ、売国しよう〜, Romaji: Tensai Ōji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu ~Sō da, Baikoku Shiyō~) is a Japanese light novel series written by Toru Toba and illustrated by fal_maro.

The story features Crown Prince, now Prince Regent, Wein Salema Arbalest who bears the responsibility of running the small Kingdom of Natra after his father, King Owen, collapses due to illness. The citizens praise Prince Wein for his outstanding level of competence, but deep inside he dislikes his duties and quietly looks for an opportunity to commit treason by selling off his home country.

The anime television series adaptation is scheduled to air in January 2022. It is spearheaded by animation studio Yokohama Animation Laboratory.

Synopsis from MAL:

It ain't easy being a genius...

Prince Wein is ready to commit treason. And who can blame him? Faced with the impossible task of ruling his pathetic little kingdom, this poor guy just can't catch a break! But with his brilliant idea of auctioning off his country, this lazy prince should be able to retire once and for all. Or that was the plan...until his treasonous schemes lead to disastrous consequences-namely, accidental victories and the favor of his people!
