The State of Cantonese Union is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Leung Chun-ying with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.86 billion Cantonese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guangzhou. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cantonese economy, worth 713 trillion Cantonese Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 146,797 Cantonese Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 928,239 per year while the poor average 9,689, a ratio of 95.8 to 1.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, the children of Cantonese Union are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, and boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cantonese Union's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cantonese Union is ranked 25,037th in the world and 483rd in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 621.44923421668 Days.
