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, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.065 billion Bai Lungeses 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 tiny, corrupt, 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 14,242 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. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 444,173 Bai Lungese Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and citizens must pay to enjoy Bai Lung's pristine beaches. 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 3,375th in the world and 104th in The East Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 10,744.98 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
