The Republic of Hong Coon is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 548 million Hong Coonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hong. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Hong Coonian economy, worth 35.5 trillion Coon marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,868 Coon marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, Hong Coon has designated New Hong as its capital city, and the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hong Coon's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hong Coon is ranked 18,116th in the world and 1,015th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.71 Bank.
