The Celestial Dragon Empire of Halsoni is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Celestial Dragon Emperor Yu Shin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.853 billion Halsonians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luoyang. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Halsonian economy, worth 156 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 84,636 Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Halsonian flag, widespread voter apathy has been credited to allegations that all candidates are puppets of Celestial Dragon Emperor Yu Shin, vaccinations are mandatory, and Celestial Dragon Emperor Yu Shin's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halsoni's national animal is the Azure Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Yin and Yang.

Halsoni is ranked 274,156th in the world and 1,797th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -10.95 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
