The Confederacy of The Pearl River is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Orchid Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.597 billion Pearl Riverese enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guangzhou. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pearl Riverian economy, worth 90.3 trillion Pearled Yuan 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 56,533 Pearled Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pearl River's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Pearl River is ranked 13,060th in the world and 5th in Hoshizora for Most Inclusive, scoring 159.94 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
