The Hangate of Townside is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zhao'He Hangma with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.291 billion Townsiders 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mei'Rong Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 39.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Townside economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Kilo Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 215,259 Kilo Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Townside's national animal is the Enfield, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Townside is ranked 57,502nd in the world and 33rd in The Western Isles for Most Authoritarian, with 917.99 milliStalins.
