The Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lin Zhang with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.577 billion Bai Lungeses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, 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 15,733 trillion Bai Lungese Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 442,246 Bai Lungese Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 2,204th in the world and 56th in The East Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 975,373 Standard Monetary Units.
