The Pearl River

Population2.778 billion

LeaderEmperor Shui II


The Celestial Commonwealth of The Pearl River is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Shui II with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.778 billion Riverese love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huayang. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pearl Riverian economy, worth 305 trillion 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,834 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. Crime is totally unknown. The Pearl River's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Pearl River is ranked 197,136th in the world and 8,607th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.48 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
