The Heavenly State of Honghai is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Olreigh with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, unlimited-speed roads, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.709 billion Honghainese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teijiangzen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Honghainese economy, worth a remarkable 1,433 trillion Honghainese Yen a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 304,426 Honghainese Yen, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, sex-ed is child's play, the government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds, and mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Honghai's national animal is the Blue Ostrich, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fire Worship.

Honghai is ranked 268,089th in the world and 1st in Throughout Time and Space for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 39.33 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
