The United Chinese Republic of Qinq Union is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cheng Hsiung with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.73 billion Chinese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 未來之城. The average income tax rate is 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Chinese economy, worth 182 trillion Qings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 105,520 Qings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Medical lawsuits are out of control, men are finding 'she spots' more easily but they can't use them, nudity is frowned upon, and schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qinq Union's national animal is the White Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chinese Buddhism.

Qinq Union is ranked 51,447th in the world and 189th in United Kingdom for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.02 law-abiding acts per hour.
