The Tian Dynasty of Boris Cult is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Skye Angel with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.016 billion Tian 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 Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. The average income tax rate is 90.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Tian economy, worth 596 trillion Celestials 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. 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 amazing 295,726 Celestials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Boris Cult's national animal is the Flowerhorns, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order Of The Glowing Flowers.

Boris Cult is ranked 144,336th in the world and 123rd in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 608.93 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
