Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by C Y Liang with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.416 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 10,645 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 435,986 Free BL Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,314,879 per year while the poor average 43,381, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

The government seizes all major gold finds, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. 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 6,088th in the world and 82nd in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 49.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
