The Happy Blue Charnel House of Chinese Lanterns is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 27.282 billion Chinese Lanternsians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 47.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chinese Lanternsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,069 trillion codpieces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,501 codpieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Livestock mutilations are on the rise, appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, third world countries are rich in "I Love Chinese Lanterns City" t-shirts, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chinese Lanterns's national animal is the water dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Chinese Lanterns is ranked 140,832nd in the world and 9th in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 449.82 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
