The Hangate of Townside is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zhao'He Hangma with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.044 billion Townsiders 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, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mei'Rong Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 38.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Townside economy, worth a remarkable 1,291 trillion Kilo Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,653 Kilo Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Townside's national animal is the Enfield, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Buddhism.
