The Phoenix Empire of Chun Nan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Lai Renxiang with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.633 billion Chuns are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shixiao. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Chunnian economy, worth 942 trillion Scripts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 167,404 Scripts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 619,889 per year while the poor average 31,833, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

Immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, and souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chun Nan's national animal is the Empyrean Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Empyrean Mantle.

Chun Nan is ranked 162,667th in the world and 12th in Mobius for Least Corrupt Governments, with 58.54 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
