The United States of Hong-Taiji is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.139 billion Apricitians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 21.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Apricitian economy, worth 224 trillion 人民幣s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,766 人民幣s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Intelligence agencies frequently invite passers-by into their secret vaults for tea and biscuits, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hong-Taiji's national animal is the panda.

Hong-Taiji is ranked 62,266th in the world and 34th in The City of Ba Sing Se for Most Stationary, with 479.6372277542 days.
