The Beiyang Republic of Tienking is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Zheng Liang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.992 billion Chinese 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peking. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.1%.

The strong Tienkingian economy, worth 99.1 trillion Yuan a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 49,733 Yuan, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Tienking has designated Peking as its capital city, President Zheng Liang has just been declared ruler of Tienking in an international press conference, and a major religion has been named as Tienking's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Tienking's national animal is the Giant Panda.

Tienking is ranked 73,156th in the world and 2nd in Akersetra for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 71.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
