The State of Cantonese Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Leung Chun-ying with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.416 billion Cantonese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guangzhou. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cantonese economy, worth 351 trillion Cantonese Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 145,305 Cantonese Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 675,067 per year while the poor average 18,795, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

Condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, and bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cantonese Union's national animal is the Mountain Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cantonese Union is ranked 20,286th in the world and 617th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 50.05 Atheism Rate.
