The Armed Republic of Shanghai industrial complex is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Leader one with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.884 billion Shanghai industrial complexians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huangpu underground Center. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.0%.

The all-consuming Shanghai industrial complexian economy, worth 307 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,505 Potatoes, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

The wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Potato charge on their phone bill, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shanghai industrial complex's national animal is the cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Shanghai industrial complex is ranked 197,248th in the world and 1st in community of common destiny for all mank for Most Primitive, scoring -153.54 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
