The Red Rose of Fragrant Harbor is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Madame Victoria with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.848 billion invaders 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winton. The average income tax rate is 26.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong invader economy, worth 316 trillion Hong Kong Dollars a year, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,212 Hong Kong Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, the endangered saltwater humpback red dragon is only seen in captivity programs, FH-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and international tensions are high as Fragrant Harbor threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Fragrant Harbor's national animal is the red dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Wintonyism.

Fragrant Harbor is ranked 185,744th in the world and 1st in Hong Kong for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.8 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
