The Divine State of The Peoples Republic of Guangzhou is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Megatronus with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.738 billion Decepticons 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, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helix on planet Cybertron. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Peoples Republic of Guangzhouan economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Energonians a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 290,905 Energonians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, military spending recently hit a new high, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Peoples Republic of Guangzhou's national animal is the Insecticon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kaonism.

The Peoples Republic of Guangzhou is ranked 168,029th in the world and 4th in The Cybertronian Dominion for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 20.74 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
