The Blue NOT Holy Confederation of Hongg Kong is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chief Executive Brandon Lei Santa Claus with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.433 billion Hongkongers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrasil of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hongkongese economy, worth 173 trillion Hong Kong Brains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 120,907 Hong Kong Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dartboard at the Hongkongese Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Chief Executive Brandon Lei Santa Claus's face, Hongkongese Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, and movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hongg Kong's national animal is the Blåhaj Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Hongg Kong is ranked 87,263rd in the world and 2,523rd in the West Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,869.48 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
