The Democratic Technocracy of Pearl River Republic is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 585 million Pearl River Republicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Glass. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pearl River Republician economy, worth 51.5 trillion Hong Kong Dollars 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 87,962 Hong Kong Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pearl River Republic's national animal is the Painted Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pearl River Republic is ranked 24,379th in the world and 679th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 79 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
