The Democratic Technocracy of Pearl River Republic is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 885 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 enormous 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 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Pearl River Republician economy, worth 87.3 trillion Hong Kong Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,644 Hong Kong Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, protests are legal but strictly supervised, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and Pearl River Republicians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. 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 121,062nd in the world and 5,086th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 29.44 on the Rand Index.
