The Colony of Chilledsville is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chilledenuff with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless population of 12.5 billion Chilledsvilleans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hub. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Chilledsvillean economy, worth a remarkable 3,057 trillion Groats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 244,573 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Chilledsvilleans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chilledsville's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chilledsville is ranked 31,500th in the world and 77th in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 266,771 Standard Monetary Units.
