The Democratic Republic of SouthEastern China is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by 永健 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, triple-decker prams, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.812 billion 香港人 enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 香港. The average income tax rate is 45.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient 香港人 economy, worth 375 trillion Hong Kong Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,605 Hong Kong Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, and the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SouthEastern China's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Buddhism.
