The Red Wing Chun Nation of Yip Man is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Yip Kai Man with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.567 billion Foshanites 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foshan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Foshanite economy, worth a remarkable 3,008 trillion Wing Chun Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 162,027 Wing Chun Yuan, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Yip Man's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, organ donation is compulsory, and children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Yip Man's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Yip Man is ranked 3,950th in the world and 6th in Texas for Most Primitive, scoring 138.2 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
