The People's Republic of Hong Kong Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Li Zhuantong with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.96 billion Chinese are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Hong Kong Empirean economy, worth 796 trillion Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 269,148 Yuan, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,164,183 per year while the poor average 39,576, a ratio of 29.4 to 1.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and career advisors ask sociopathic orphan girls if they have considered becoming professional assassins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hong Kong Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Hong Kong Empire is ranked 1,804th in the world and 59th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 9,366.38 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
