The Grand Duchy of Chareest is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.826 billion Chareestians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Chareestian economy, worth 91.5 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is 50,095 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chareest's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chareest is ranked 61,227th in the world and 2,301st in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 67 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
