The Floating Island of Chidorigan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kazekage-sama with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 4.546 billion Chidoriganians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chidorigan City. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chidoriganian economy, worth 504 trillion Ryoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,920 Ryoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chidorigan's national animal is the Tanuki, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Narutoism.

Chidorigan is ranked 29,754th in the world and 1,428th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,673.77 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
