The Free Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lin Zhang with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, strictly enforced bedtime, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.032 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 11,290 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 433,721 Free BL Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,479,996 per year while the poor average 36,682, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the government is a law unto itself, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. 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 17,362nd in the world and 609th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,693.34 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
