Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Conglomerate of Hong Kong Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Yuanfu Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.54 billion Imperials are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hong Kong. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hong Kong Empirean economy, worth 296 trillion HKDS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 192,536 HKDS, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,061,596 per year while the poor average 17,667, a ratio of 60.1 to 1.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, Snake populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hong Kong Empire's national animal is the Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ophiolatry.

Hong Kong Empire is ranked 2,648th in the world and 95th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 215.85 on the Hayek Index.
