The Early Childhood Apparitions of Bin and Miao is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Miao with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, triple-decker prams, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.134 billion Ghosts are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tien's Landing. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Undead economy, worth 285 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, quite specialized black market in Retail, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. 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 an impressive 133,786 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"Day of the Rope" is the top song of the summer, gangs have taken to secret handshakes after tattoos were banned, fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime is pervasive, 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, and its national religion is Vengeance.

Bin and Miao is ranked 18,359th in the world and 1st in The ancient atlantic for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 4,819.06 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
