The Renmin Minzhu Zhuanzheng of ChiCon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Chiconian People's Party with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.829 billion 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.
The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zhongnanhai. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient ChiConian economy, worth a remarkable 3,506 trillion yuan a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 196,692 yuan, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,044,342 per year while the poor average 19,571, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.
The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', citizens must pay to enjoy ChiCon's pristine beaches, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Panda Lasagne is a hit, and seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu'. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. ChiCon's national animal is the panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mao's Red Book.
