The Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lin Zhang with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.001 billion Bai Lungeses are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, 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 12,579 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. Average income is an amazing 433,777 Bai Lungese Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,969,665 per year while the poor average 58,508, a ratio of 33.7 to 1.

Citizens must pay to enjoy Bai Lung's pristine beaches, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. 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 919th in the world and 9th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 341.18 on the Hayek Index.
