The Renmin Minzhu Zhuanzheng of ChiCon is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Chiconian People's Party with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.504 billion, 12.054 billion of whom are zombies, ChiConians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zhongnanhai. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism industries.
Tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the government is outsourcing itself, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. ChiCon's national animal is the panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Mao's Red Book, and its currency is the yuan.
ChiCon is currently considering its options.
