Hong Kong Empire

Population8.174 billion

LeaderThe Taizong Emperor


The Imperial Dynasty of Hong Kong Empire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Taizong Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.174 billion Chinese 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chengde. The average income tax rate is 26.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Chinese economy, worth a remarkable 3,053 trillion Taels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 373,502 Taels, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Dragon', scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, and the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Hong Kong Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Hong Kong Empire is ranked 3,052nd in the world and 162nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,456.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
