The Celestial Dragon Empire of Halsoni is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Celestial Dragon Emperor Yu Shin with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.585 billion Halsonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luoyang. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Halsonian economy, worth 133 trillion Yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,434 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, the government pours millions of Yuan into rehabilitation programs annually, most pop videos prominently feature the Halsonian flag, and widespread voter apathy has been credited to allegations that all candidates are puppets of Celestial Dragon Emperor Yu Shin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halsoni's national animal is the Azure Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Yin and Yang.

Halsoni is ranked 24,253rd in the world and 127th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 18,904.52 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
