The Pearl River

Population2.533 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Hana Tao


The Celestial Commonwealth of The Pearl River is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hana Tao with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.533 billion Riverese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huayang. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pearl Riverian economy, worth 270 trillion Yuan a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,754 Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Under love's heavy burden Prime Minister Hana Tao sinks lower in the political right's esteem, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of The Pearl River. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pearl River's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Pearl River is ranked 164,537th in the world and 8,095th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
