The Republic of Chiho is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed population of 541 million Chihoese are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chukyo. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Chihoese economy, worth 57.6 trillion New Chiho Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,388 New Chiho Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chiho's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chiho is ranked 100,412th in the world and 4,266th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,060.79 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
