The Chinese Union-Imperial or CUI is a country covering much of Asia, with borders similar to modern China.
The successor government to the People's Republic of China. This new goverment model showed its weakness when heir to the Union-Imperial was killed with the attack on Flight BA178 on November 25th, 2011. This caused an escalation of tensions between the CUI the US and the UK.
During the Timeskip, a war broke out between the union and Thailand or as it was now called New Siam. This conflict eventually called in other nations with the United States siding with New Siam while Red Gauntlet of Russia sided with the CUI, with unspecified support from other Russian parahuman factions.
At some point, the North Korean regime likely collapsed, and the CUI expanded into part of the Korean Peninsula.
During Gold Morning they were recorded as attacking several refugee settlements with their Yàngbǎn infiltration squads. They were later subdued by Ziz. They were able to keep the world they fled to, secured through an alliance with Teacher.
The CUI are governed by an imperial family, and are supported by the Yàngbǎn. They have hundreds of millions of citizens.
Much like other countries in Asia, the CUI suffers from endemic anti-parahuman sentiment. Capes get hunted and conscripted/killed by government forces or other capes . As a result, the ratio of capes to non-capes is significantly lower in the CUI as compared to America . Note, due to the higher population of China as compared to America, this does not mean the CUI necessarily has less parahumans in total.
The CUI's culture around capes is such that they have a governmental team, and there are really strict rules for expectations of capes, such that non-government capes are set up to lose .
