The Hangate of Townside is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Zhao'He Hangma with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.266 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 government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mei'Rong Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 46.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Townside economy, worth a remarkable 1,563 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.

Average income is an amazing 215,124 Kilo Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 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.
