Shanghai industrial complex

Population733 million

CapitalHuangpu underground Center


The Armed Republic of Shanghai industrial complex is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 733 million 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 56.4%.

The all-consuming Shanghai industrial complexian economy, worth 75.8 trillion Potatoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 103,411 Potatoes, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, and credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government. 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 38,117th in the world and 2nd in community of common destiny for all mank for Longest Average Lifespans, with 81.52 Years.
