I'd say you don't need official residency papers of fictional characters to prove that they are residents.

I have a feeling that if Godzilla were to exist in reality, has massive girth would be an overwhelming strain on the real-estate market.

Why would you give residency to someone who wants to destroy your city? They won't be laughing when Godzilla destroys them all.

Never mind Godzilla (who was probably outside of the sea mile limit anyway)--
So, Shin-chan was never really a Japanese citizen until now?? Confused

@EricJ2

They weren't awarded citizenship. What they got was residency papers for the Shinjuku Ward.

Mexico and Shin-chan are made for each other, he shoulda just stayed.

Making him/her/it a resident makes it so that they have to pay income taxes on their revenues Wink
