The Empire of Songjiang is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Ming Shan Mai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.136 billion Songjiangians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. The average income tax rate is 66.8%.

The thriving Songjiangian economy, worth 306 trillion Yuan a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,878 Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Songjiang's national animal is the Celestial Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Taoism.

Songjiang is ranked 12,658th in the world and 11th in APSIA for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 4,828.69 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
