The Republic of Bai Lung is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lin Zhang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.459 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, 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 13,916 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 442,375 Bai Lungese Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,781,476 per year while the poor average 29,638, a ratio of 93.8 to 1.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. 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 35,963rd in the world and 1,195th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 67.56 on the Rand Index.
