The Endless 80s Pop and Big Hair of Gaozu is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.073 billion Gaozunese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jiangrao. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gaozuan economy, worth 245 trillion Yuan a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,600 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and where your food came from is an unknowable mystery. Crime is totally unknown. Gaozu's national animal is the Moon-eating Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Gaozu is ranked 108,082nd in the world and 2,172nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Black Market, with 105 billion Standard Monetary Units.
