The Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gong Chūrý with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 37.782 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 16,734 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 442,926 Bai Lungese Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,781,471 per year while the poor average 73,698, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', political activists are routinely executed, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. 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 4,742nd in the world and 70th in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 10,939.57 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
