The Hangate of Townside is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zhao'He Hangma with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.126 billion Townsiders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mei'Rong Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Townside economy, worth a remarkable 1,721 trillion Kilo Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 211,897 Kilo Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Townside's national animal is the Enfield, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.
