The Stratocratic Confederation of Chetsinia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High General JD Madhys with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.132 billion Chetsins are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venaza. The average income tax rate is 93.4%.

The all-consuming Chetsin economy, worth 432 trillion Ikozes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 137,941 Ikozes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", catcalling has been replaced by slut-shaming, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chetsinia's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Chetsinia is ranked 111,959th in the world and 4,598th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,222.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
