The Republic of Chips and Guac is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 302 million Chips and Guacians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flavortown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Chips and Guacian economy, worth 32.2 trillion Tortillas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,632 Tortillas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 583,771 per year while the poor average 9,938, a ratio of 58.7 to 1.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, all streets are privately owned toll roads, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Flavortown Times is sold out, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Chips and Guac's national animal is the No-step-on Snek, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Chips and Guac is ranked 1,497th in the world and 602nd in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 64,028 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
