The United Republic of Lungha is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Party Leader Ming with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.839 billion Lunghayuns are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haicheng 海城. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Lunghan economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion Lunghan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 323,906 Lunghan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has enacted freedom of information, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, and Party Leader Ming will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lungha's national animal is the Steel Lobster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lungha is ranked 55,346th in the world and 3,013th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,072.97 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
