The Phoenix Empire of Chun Nan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Lai Renxiang with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.565 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 34.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chunnian economy, worth a remarkable 1,428 trillion Scripts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 166,802 Scripts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,150,419 per year while the poor average 8,575, a ratio of 134 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 34,455th in the world and 3rd in Mobius for Most Influential, scoring 855 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
