The Holy Red Empire of Chazcam is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor ChazDaPawMan with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.463 billion Chazites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frankworth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Chazcamian economy, worth 464 trillion Lego studs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,787 Lego studs, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, punk-rockers and girl-bands are united in their loss of fashion statements, political visitors are forced to stop ten paces from Emperor ChazDaPawMan's throne, and government ministers claim to ride dragons to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chazcam's national animal is the Half octopus-eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Fluffin Puffin-Christian.

Chazcam is ranked 7,737th in the world and 11th in The Axis of Evil for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 523,339 Standard Monetary Units.
