The Free Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by C Y Liang with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.778 billion Bai Lungeses are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyongjing. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Bai Lungian economy, worth a remarkable 9,121 trillion Free BL Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 418,842 Free BL Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,012,964 per year while the poor average 18,754, a ratio of 160 to 1.
Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, political activists are routinely executed, and jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Bai Lung's national animal is the Tiger Pig and Man, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
