The New Kowloon Bay of Point Chayenne is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Winslow Harper with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.187 billion Chayennans 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Law & Order, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Chayenne. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Chayennean economy, worth 998 trillion Bread Tokens a year, is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,310 Bread Tokens, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 880,236 per year while the poor average 15,141, a ratio of 58.1 to 1.

Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Winslow Harper's eyes only', cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and medical staff can legally quiet people who ask for a second helping of Salisbury steak. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Point Chayenne's national animal is the White Swimming Eel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agritholicism.

Point Chayenne is ranked 2,010th in the world and 35th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with 536 meters of sunlight.
