The Semi-Confederated Federation of Chokoku is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Siinuupewa with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.539 billion Chokosans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chosai. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chokosue economy, worth a remarkable 1,667 trillion Choyens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 300,996 Choyens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, King Siinuupewa's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, surveillance cameras are banned, and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime is totally unknown. Chokoku's national animal is the Semiinjako, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chokoku is ranked 8,391st in the world and 6th in Union of Allied States for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 86,686.92 Standard Monetary Units.
