The Colony of Charishstein is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 424 million Charishsteinis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Delmond Osa. The average income tax rate is 45.8%.

The very strong Charishsteinian economy, worth 34.0 trillion Bayts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,187 Bayts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, the government seizes all major gold finds, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charishstein's national animal is the Tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Charishstein is ranked 41,054th in the world and 24th in Thegye for Most Beautiful Environments, with 676.2 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
