The Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lin Zhang with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.646 billion Bai Lungeses 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyongjing. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bai Lungian economy, worth an astonishing 14,073 trillion Bai Lungese Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 444,707 Bai Lungese Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Bai Lung's national animal is the Tiger Pig and Man, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bai Lung is ranked 1,050th in the world and 36th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,760.68 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
