The Nation of Hokkien (福建) (also called Ban (闽)) is a member of the Chinese Union. It is known for its amazing diversity of languages. Even today, with a centralized government and education system, it is still largely true that even only two towns down from your own, it's hard or even impossible to understand the dialect or language. Only in the mid-20th century did Hokkien implement a program to teach people how to communicate with other groups. Even now, there is no official language. Because most of the languages share the same or very similar written forms, reading and writing have become the most critical studies, as it's easy to get your meaning across when you write it down. Currently, Hokkien is starting to feel more like a single country as people using different languages and dialects communicate more or less fluently while using the internet, because of its emphasis on typing instead of speaking. Also, it is a requirement in school to pass either the standard Ban Lam (Southern Min), Ban Pak (Northern Min), or Ban Tang (Eastern Min) speaking tests.

Hokkien's two major cities (Hokchew and Amoy) together contain around 36% of the entire population of the nation, and are continuing to pull in people from the countryside. Until the latter half of the 20th century, Hokkien was not very developed. Even now, its economy still lags behind those of the other eastern seaboard nations like Yue, Jonggwo, Gwong, and Wu, but its economy is currently growing quickly.

Only recently has any non-Chinese investment flowed into Hokkien, and Occidentals are still a rare sight, especially in the countryside, where Children often stare at the "ang moh"s, or "Red Hair" (a usually inoffensive but uncultured term).

The Hokkien people, in general, love celebrations, and even compared to other Chinese, are ardent about the Chinese New Year, buying and setting off many kinds of fireworks and giving out (and hopefully receiving) "ang pow"s (also "ang pau"s), or "red packets" of money. The majority of Hokkienese are vegetarian, but they also like the taste of meat, and so Hokkien (along with Taiwan and Sundarapore) is famous as a major producer and inventor of Chinese mock meat varieties.
