The People's Republic of Qilai is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 694 million Qilaians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Qilaian economy, worth 58.5 trillion Renmibis 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 84,357 Renmibis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Qilai, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Beijing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Qilai's national animal is the Xiongmao, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
