The People's Republic of China
The People's Republic of China

China, officially the People's Republic of China (PRC), is a unitary one-party sovereign state in East Asia and the world's most populous country, with a population of around 1.404 billion. Covering approximately 9,600,000 square kilometers (3,700,000 sq mi), it is the third- or fourth-largest country by total area, depending on the source consulted. Governed by the Communist Party of China, the state exercises jurisdiction over 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four direct-controlled municipalities (Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Chongqing), and the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau.

As of a 2009 census, China is believed to have the single largest population of SLC-Expressives in the world at an estimated 13,790,000. This number is based on the estimate that roughly 1% of the total world population is SLC-Expressive and official numbers of SLC-Expressives within China are unavailable to the public.

China had the largest economy in the world for most of the past two thousand years, during which it has seen cycles of prosperity and decline. As of 2014, China has the world's largest economy in terms of nominal GDP, totalling approximately US$30.650 trillion according to the International Monetary Fund. In terms of purchasing power parity (PPP) GDP, China's economy is the largest in the world, with a 2014 PPP GDP of US$51.812 trillion. In 2013, its PPP GDP per capita was US$36,880, while its nominal GDP per capita was US$12,690. Both cases put China behind around eighty countries (out of 183 countries on the IMF list) in global GDP per capita rankings.

With the collapse of the United States financial institutions following the country's disastrous civil war, China has taken ownership of a considerably larger portion of American debt to help stabilize the nation and global economics.

One of the most influential Chinese corporations with an influence in post-war America is Praxis Heavy Industries.


Xi Jinping is the current General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC), President of the People's Republic of China, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission. Often described as China's "paramount leader", in 2016 the CPC officially gave him the title of "core leader". As General Secretary, Xi holds an ex-officio seat on the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China, China's top decision-making body.[8]

Xi is the first General Secretary to have been born after the Second World War. The son of Chinese Communist veteran Xi Zhongxun, he was exiled to rural Yanchuan County as a teenager following his father's purge during the Cultural Revolution, and lived in a cave in the village of Liangjiahe, where he organized communal laborers. Xi's first term began in 2012, taking over for his predecessor Hu Jintao and maintained Jintao's instatement of laws and regulations pertaining to SLC-Expressive people.

Xi is otherwise seen as a moderate in comparison to other international leaders, though his governance of China is presently stymied by adversarial political opposition from strongly Pro-SLC-Expressive politicians and corporations.

Rights of the Evolved

At present SLC-Expressive people have no unique rights within China. The compulsory military service in China extends to male and female SLC-Expressives prior to birth. During the last trimester, unborn children are tested three times for the Suresh Linkage Complex. Families of those who test positive are moved onto reserved military-owned residences and their children are expected to undergo lifelong training regimens and perform compulsory service until the age of 25.

Since this law's passage in 2009, an esimated 1.49 million children were conscripted prior to birth into the Chinese military. They and their families live within compound settlements in comfortable living arrangements. Families are encouraged to deliver SLC-Expressive children of any gender and the Chinese government pays families handsomely for unborn SLC-Expressive children that they wish to give up custody of. It is estimated that the Chinese government holds custody of some 50,000 SLC-Expressive children from the ages of 1 to 9.

SLC-Expressives born prior to the 2009 ruling who already performed compulsory military service are required to attend another 3 years of service with opportunity for considerable upwards advancement pending the utility of the ability they possess.

SLC-Expressives who attempt to live outside of strict governmental oversight or commit crimes with their abilities are harshly punished, including lifetime incarceration with chemical negation to outright execution.

In the private sector, the demand for SLC-Expressives is in high demand. Though the Chinese government requires mandatory registration, there are no restrictions on Expressives holding private or political positions and provided their records remain exemplary without criminal activity, they are encouraged to excel within society. Many Chinese corporations actively seek SLC-Expressive employees both domestic and foreign. This favoritism has resulted in considerable resentment and contention among the considerably larger Non-Expressive population of China, and a growing threat of civil unrest threatens to throw China into a similar internicine conflict as America endured in the early 2010s.


China demands mandatory registration of all its citizens both SLC-Expressive and Non-Expressive. Mandatory blood tests are administered every 3 years and coincide with renewal of a civil identification license required to work and own property. SLC-Expressive individuals are highly sought after for private sector and government positions, though a predominance are often pushed into military applications.

Evasion of Registration is a crime punishable by imprisonment, forced labor (dependent on the nature of any hidden ability), or in extreme cases capital punishment.

China's national registry is private, though corporations can "buy in" to the registry for talent scouting purposes, provided they are based out of or do the predominance of their work within China.

Law Enforcement

The Chinese legal system has changed little in the face of a rapidly changing world. Law enforcement in China consists of an extensive public security system and a variety of enforcement procedures used to maintain order in the country. Along with the courts and procuratorates, the country's judicial and public security agencies include the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of State Security, with their descending hierarchy of departments, bureaus, subbureaus, and stations. Hong Kong and Macau have separate law enforcement agencies and work together with mainland agencies to deal with crime between them.

SLC-Expressive law enforcement officers are in high demand and are often relocated from other parts of the country to fill jurisdictional needs. Abilities such as telepathy, precognition, and postcognition are employed judiciously and, unlike in other countries, evidence gained through such abilities is often admissable in court.


International travel to China is largely unchanged since before the revelation of the Evolved. However, travelers entering China who are not declared are registered Expressive or Non-Expressive with their nation's government must consent to a blood test at customs. Testing negative adds an SLC-Non stamp to the traveler's passport (which may be reviewed upon return to their home country) while SLC-Expressive likewise gains a passport stamp but also requires a lengthy interrogation process to ferret out SLC-Expressive terrorists and corporate and political espionage. These interrogations sometimes involve telepathic or empathic customs agents. Upon completion of the interview the SLC-Expressive is given a special travel card identifying their expressive nature and the nature of their ability that is valid for the duration of their travel visa.

SLC-Expressive travelers who have been convicted of a felony are not allowed into China without corporate or government sponsorship.

China in the News

March, 2009

CHINA — Vice Premier Hui Liangyu of the People's Republic of China announced today that pre-natal screening would begin as early as 2010 on all expectant newborns that are born within the borders of China for the Suresh Linkage-Complex. China has been, for some time, struggling with the revelation of the Evolved in a social scale, resulting in the worst rioting and cultural destabilization in that region in generations.

This statement follows up on an announcement by President Hu Jintao declaring that all children who test positive for the Evolved gene will be required to take part in compulsory military service and education. Hu Jintao cited Article 55 of the Constitution, stating "It is a sacred duty of every citizen of the People's Republic of China to defend his or her motherland and resist invasion. It is an honored obligation of the citizens of the People's Republic of China to perform military service and to join the militia forces." With today's announcement, it could mean families moved into military care before their child is even born.

May, 2009

MASSACHUSETTS - Scientists at MIT have put out a report on Monday indicating that the national percentage of reported Evolved births for 2008 was down almost 16% since 2007. This marks the second year of steady decline in reported births of children to registered Evolved parents. While this number may not be indicative of an overall drop in population density of the Evolved, due to lack of nationwide support for Registration and proper recognition of Evolved births in all states, it does serve as an eye-opener towards potential answers to the mystery of the Evolved.

Professor David Levey indicated that one MIT professor of statistics who departed the university in late 2008 had been working on what professed was a global patterning to Evolved births surrounding instances of full solar eclipses.

These journals originally published in 2007 by Doctor Edward Ray indicated the possibilities that unknown environmental conditions linked to the events of total solar eclipses have matched records in the governments Registry of Evolved for dates of first manifestation of abilities, as well as births of Evolved individuals.

While Doctor Ray's research was never finished, Professor Levey insists that the recent decline in reported births since the last total solar eclipse in the United States in 2007 could potentially mean that another population spike could occur during the next total solar eclipse scheduled to occur over India, eastern Nepal, northern Bangladesh, Bhutan, the northern tip of Myanmar, central China and the Pacific Ocean, including Ryukyu Islands, Marshall Islands and Kiribati. Totality will be visible in many cities such as Surat, Varanasi, Patna, Thimphu, Chengdu, Chongqing, Wuhan, Hangzhou and Shanghai, as well as over the Three Gorges Dam.

SHANGHAI — China will do preparatory work for the drilling of deep Antarctic glacier ice core at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Research Station in July, a scientist said here Friday.

In China's 26th Antarctic scientific expedition, scientists will build a deep drilling work shop and install drilling machines, said Li Yuansheng, head of China's Kunlun Station, the country's first research station on the continent's inland. The drilling will be a part of a multi-national scientific research endeavor to help understand the origins of life here on earth through the chemical and biological histories contained within deep Antarctic core samples.

In January, China set up the Kunlun station at Dome Argus, the pole's highest icecap at 4,093 meters above the sea level with the assistance of researchers from the U.S. operated Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station.

China's 25th Antarctic scientific expedition team left in October for a 173-day trip, the longest in China's polar expedition history, and returned to Shanghai Thursday. China has another two research stations in Antarctica. The Changcheng (Great-Wall) Station, founded in February 1985, is south of King George Island. The Zhongshan Station, built in February 1989, is south of Prydz Bay on the Mirror Peninsula, eastern of Larsemann Hills.

Six countries, including the United States, Russia, Japan, France, Italy and Germany, have already built inland research stations in Antarctica. Wei Wenliang, an official for polar expedition affairs with the State Oceanic Administration, said China is planning to build an aid center in Australia to help Antarctic research.

The center, which will be in Sydney or Hobart, will help scientists get to the Zhongshan and Kunlun stations quicker by flights and provide them with more fresh food, Wei added.

Scientists believe that further study of microbial life found in deep core samples in Antarctica could help with the search for the origins of Evolved abilities in humanity. The Amundsen-Scott Research Station has been the center of unusual reports of Evolved activity in the last year, with two separate cited incidents of accidental teleportation to the Antarctic region.

TIBET — Shortly after dawn, the bodies of over six thousand Tibetan men and women were discovered outside of the city of Barkam. United Nations officials have reported that all but fifteen of the dead have tested positive postmortem for the Suresh Linkage Complex, the genes responsible for Evolved abilities. This marks the single largest anti-evolved genetic cleansing in the region.

A UN task force has been formed in order to investigate the origins of the remains, as the multi-ethnic mix of those found dead have led UN authorities to believe that the remains may have been moved from a separate site of execution.

United Nations representative Harold Marlowe cited this incident as one of many such incidents potentially being perpetrated on the Asian continent. All eyes have been pointing to China for months now, due to their publicized anti-evolved crackdown, and with this incident so close to home, it is leaving many wondering when the other shoe is going to drop.

June, 2009

CHINA — In world news, China has garnered attention in the global scene by announcing the results of its first-quarter evolved registration results. The department of genetic infrastructure reports that China possesses an estimated 13,790,000 potentially SLC-Expressive citizens. Currently, the Chinese registry sits at 10,274. With the Chinese mandatory drafting for all Evolved citizens of China — regardless of age — this effectively constitutes the largest standing army of Evolved soldiers in the world.

February, 2010

HONG KONG, China — Representatives of the Apple Daily have announced that they have recently entered negotiations with the Communist Party to sell the firm to the Chinese government. Representatives deny that this in any way related to the Daily's article speculating on the circumstances of the Amundsen-Scott Antarctica Research Station's closure last month or speculation on the absence of the People's Liberation Army's Evolved members from public events and ceremonial proceedings.

This change of ownership comes as a great surprise to many of the Daily's readership, as the paper was known throughout both the mainland for its relentless basis in economic and political freedoms, as well as 'tabloid'-style sensationalism, focus on celebrity lifestyles, dependency on corporate sponsorship, and choice of sources. Historically, the paper was banned throughout the mainland for both anti-government sentiment and brash reporting. Its websites have been blocked by the great firewall of China. Few references to the Apple Daily have ever appeared in mainstream Chinese news media.

During the handover of 1997, when Hong Kong returned to the dominion of China, the Apple Daily's founder Lai Chee Ying had reportedly made preparations for the possibility of forceful suppression from the Communist Party. He has consistently cultivated a low profile and kept his personal life private, and continues to be unavailable for personal comment at the end of his legacy.

Reports are coming in from the Xichang Space Center in the People's Republic of China, where an accident during launch for their shuttle launch intended to send a team of scientists and researchers to the International Space Station caused catastrophic damage.

According to information released by the Chinese government, an engine malfunction in the primary booster rocket during launch preparation resulted in an explosion that severely damaged both the shuttle and the launch pad. Several people were injured in the blast and it is not certain at this time whether the scientists involved in the launch were injured.

The Chinese government is being restrictive with access to the Xichang site and reporters have not been authorized to visit the facility for "their own safety" due to alleged chemical contamination from the explosion. No further information is available at this time. Director Chen Qiufa of COSTIND has stated that more information will be made available, but did not speculate as to when.

January, 2011

CHINA — United Nations Security Council efforts to calm tensions between North and South Korea, the United States, and Japan were stalled as China refused to support a resolution condemning the North for a Jan. 9 attack on the South Korean capitol of Soul, which left 340 dead and an unknown number more injured. China declined to join a majority of the Security Council members in condemning the North Korean attack, according to a diplomat present at the meeting who spoke with reporters on condition of anonymity. The Chinese mission to the UN didn't respond to a telephone message requesting comment.

Russia called an emergency session of the UN council today saying it feared "further escalation of tensions" on the Korean peninsula following the arrival of the nuclear aircraft carrier the USS George Washington to the waters between South Korea and Japan. The USS George Washington joined 12 Japanese naval vessels off the coast of South Korea in what Russian diplomats are calling, "an antagonizing show of force."

South Korea's intentions to return fire to North Korea over their demilitarized zone have been stalled by attempts to broker peace by the UN Security Council, said an official at South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff who declined to be named, citing military policy. South Korea's last artillery exchange with North Kora, where it fired shells into the sea off the Southern-held Yeonpyeong island, were met with a return barrage Nov. 23 that killed four South Koreans on the island.

Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso has called for a "united front" against the aggressions of North Korea against the South. Tensions in the region stem from a September 14th incident where three Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force warships in national waters were allegedly destroyed off of the northwestern shore of Hokkaido by Evolved military agents believed to be working with the Chinese government.

China has disavowed any involvement in the sinking of the Kirishima, Kongo, and the Chokai.

February, 2018

CHINA — Chinese Premier Ma Kai released a public statement on February 23rd regarding the disappearance of 12,764 Chinese citizens from the Kangbashi District last month. Investigators from China's Youyue Department have confirmed that uncontrolled expression of an SLC-E ability caused the dislocation of an entire city block in Kangbashi. The newly relocated residents to the once-unpopulated city disappeared on January 3rd following a massive power outage. The cause of the disappearance was at first attributed to a worker's strike at the city's partially completed spaceport.
