The Early Childhood Apparitions of Bin and Miao is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Miao with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 841 million Ghosts 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tien's Landing. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Undead economy, worth 83.7 trillion Yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,583 Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history, a decrease in wailing and gnashing of teeth at astronomical events is reducing demand for dentistry, unruly families are deliberately marooned on desert islands, and fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bin and Miao's national animal is the Rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bin and Miao is ranked 42,124th in the world and 2nd in The ancient atlantic for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.53 Bank.
