The Exalted Empire of Feng Dynasty is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Taihe with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.853 billion Fengese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taijing. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fengese economy, worth 460 trillion Taels a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,524 Taels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Policy reversals are more often graceful demi-détournés than u-turns, clumsy self-injury is a viable claim in modern compensation culture, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, and young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Feng Dynasty's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Feng Dynasty is ranked 219,845th in the world and 47th in Northern Utopia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -94.74 on the Hayek Index.
