Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Renmin Minzhu Zhuanzheng of ChiCon is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Chiconian People's Party with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.559 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, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. 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 6,544 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 290,103 yuan, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,462,908 per year while the poor average 32,073, a ratio of 45.6 to 1.

Terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, and The Chiconian People's Party's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. 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 479th in the world and 1st in China for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
