The Happy Charnel House of Chinese Lanterns is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 24.6 billion Chinese Lanternsians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 42.3%.

The all-consuming Chinese Lanternsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,589 trillion codpieces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,277 codpieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, and law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chinese Lanterns's national animal is the water dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Chinese Lanterns is ranked 43,710th in the world and 12th in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Governments, scoring 19.29 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
