The Auspicious Republic of Xiaodong is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Yuan Xiannian and Xi Yao-tong with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.327 billion Xiaodongese 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rongzhuo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Xiaodongese economy, worth 917 trillion Renjins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,027 Renjins, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Xiaodong as a reminder of their "special relationship", historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, and sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Xiaodong's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Taojiao.

Xiaodong is ranked 18,467th in the world and 16th in Esquarium for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 6,020.57 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
