The Peoples Republic of Politiania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by General Secretary Song Chen with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.299 billion Politianians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Politianian economy, worth a remarkable 3,042 trillion Tngzhs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 366,636 Tngzhs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,314,000 per year while the poor average 73,367, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, third world countries are rich in "I Love Beijing" t-shirts, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and the statue in the Scully Plaza has a solar panel for a hat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Politiania's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Politiania is ranked 32,606th in the world and 1st in The Great Red Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,337.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
