The Celestial Commonwealth of The Pearl River is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Shui II with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.74 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 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pearl Riverian economy, worth 301 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 109,900 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, and the poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet. 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 3,802nd in the world and 184th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 61.06 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
