The Famous Wing Chun Grandmaster of Yip Man is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Yip Kai Man with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.649 billion Foshanites are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Social Policy, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foshan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Foshanite economy, worth a remarkable 4,654 trillion Wing Chun Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 188,849 Wing Chun Yuan, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,079,830 per year while the poor average 15,972, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.

Crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, billions of Wing Chun Yuan are being blown on orbital weapons development, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Yip Man's mid-life crisis. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Yip Man's national animal is the Red Panda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Yip Man is ranked 293,298th in the world and 15th in Foshan Mars Colony for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.72 law-abiding acts per hour.
