Japan got a law in 2008 where being obese is illegal. If your waist is bigger than 90 or 85 cm (Depending on which sex you're), you're considered obese and needs to lose weight. You don't need to go to jail, but you needs to go down in weight and if you can't manage it on your own, you gets professionals to help you losing your weight. They helps you making a exercise and eating plan.
In addition if a employer is overweight and doesn't slim down, his/her workplace have to pay a fine. In a Japanese work place they do exercise. They do enforce the law checking every people in the country and measuring their waist.
