The Disturbingly Jingoist Empire of Kuominwave is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shi Shanghen 史伤痕 with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.58 billion Kuominwaveans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kuominwavean economy, worth 214 trillion Yuan 人民幣s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 135,673 Yuan 人民幣s, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Kuominwave at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kuominwave's national animal is the Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Kuominwave is ranked 17,376th in the world and 209th in Europeia for Most Developed, scoring 78.09 on the Human Development Index.
