The Minokawan Empire of Chick Chack is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Vurice Ix Treyor with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 934 million Chick chackies 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roosteria Chickeria. The average income tax rate is 51.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chick chack economy, worth 137 trillion Crackers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,952 Crackers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, the Pacific holds its breath as nuclear warfare is being seriously considered, and the nation is weighing the price of victory following a nuclear strike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chick Chack's national animal is the Minokawa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chick Chack is ranked 162,224th in the world and 6,267th in the Pacific for Safest, scoring 38.56 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
