Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by C Y Liang with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of public education, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.581 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 an astonishing 10,248 trillion Free BL Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 434,602 Free BL Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,049,812 per year while the poor average 21,141, a ratio of 144 to 1.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Bai Lung's pristine beaches, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. 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.

Bai Lung is ranked 94th in the world and 6th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 873.39 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
