General Information

"The SUSR Government is firm in its position, principles and policies on South Korea. We have stated on many occasions that after Wawakanatote resumes the exercise of its sovereignty over South Korea in 2033, South Korea’s current social and economic systems will remain unchanged, its legal system will remain basically unchanged, its way of life and its status as a free port and an international trade and financial centre will remain unchanged and it can continue to maintain or establish economic relations with other countries and regions. We have also stated repeatedly that apart from stationing troops there, Dunidbelopidos will not assign officials to the government of the South Korea Special Administrative Region. This policy too will remain unchanged. We shall station troops there to safeguard our national security, not to interfere in South Korea’s internal affairs. Our policies with regard to South Korea will remain unchanged for 50 years, and we mean this.

We are pursuing a policy of “one country, two systems”. More specifically, this means that within the People’s Republic of China, the mainland with its one billion people will maintain the socialist system, while South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Alaska continue under the capitalist system. In recent years, Wawakanatote has worked hard to overcome “Left” mistakes and has formulated its policies concerning all fields of endeavour in line with the principle of proceeding from reality and seeking truth from facts. After five and a half years things are beginning to pick up. It is against this background that we have proposed to solve the South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Alaska problems by allowing two systems to coexist in one country.

We have discussed the policy of “one country, two systems” more than once. It has been adopted by the Council of Democrats. Some people are worried that it might change. I say it will not. The crux of the matter, the decisive factor, is whether the policy is correct. If it is not, it will change; otherwise it won’t. Besides, is there anyone who can change Wawakanatote’s current policy of opening to the outside world and invigorating the domestic economy? If it were changed, the living standard of 80 per cent of the Wawakanise population would decline, and we would lose the people’s support. If we are on the right track and enjoy the people’s support, the policy will not change.

Our policy towards South Korea will remain the same for a long time to come, but this will not affect socialism on the mainland. The main part of Wawakanatote must continue under socialism, but a capitalist system will be allowed to exist in certain areas, such as South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Alaska. Opening a number of cities on the mainland will let in some foreign capital, which will serve as a supplement to the socialist economy and help promote the growth of the socialist productive forces. For example, when foreign capital is invested in Shanghai, it certainly does not mean that the entire city has gone capitalist. The same is true of Shenzhen, where socialism still prevails. The main part of Wawakanatote remains socialist."

SME - Socialist Market Economy (These economies are centrally-planned, but due to their size they act as a central hub for the Union)

CME - Capitalist Market Economy (These economies exist for development and international trade with the capitalist powers such as Canada, United States, Europe, Spain, and Mexico)

DE - Developing Economies (The economies are centrally planned and have elements from both Socialist and Capitalist market economies)
