The People's Republic of Shangcheng is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The cynical, devout population of 842 million Shangchengians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fuzhou. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Shangchengian economy, worth 40.6 trillion Shangcheng Renminbis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,258 Shangcheng Renminbis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funding for education has been redirected into the military, much of Shangcheng's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shangcheng's national animal is the Chinese sparrowhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Shangcheng is ranked 246,569th in the world and 2nd in Createmino Region for Smartest Citizens, with 8.18 quips per hour.
