The People's Republic of Ziyou de Xin Zhongguo is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.029 billion Zhongguoans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ziyou de Xin Zhongguoan economy, worth 44.6 trillion Harvested Human Organs 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 43,346 Harvested Human Organs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The cold war against capitalism is growing chillier by the day, aides are afraid to ask if Leader wants a cup of tea or coffee, the crispy fried liver of a Red Panda is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziyou de Xin Zhongguo's national animal is the Red Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ziyou de Xin Zhongguo is ranked 115,476th in the world and 127th in Wintreath for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 386.7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
