The Renmin Minzhu Zhuanzheng of ChiCon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Chiconian People's Party with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.623 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, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. 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 7,117 trillion yuan a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 301,298 yuan, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Zhongnanhai as a backdrop. 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 the ChiConian Little Red Book.

ChiCon is ranked 167,769th in the world and 21st in China for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.97 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
