The Semi-Confederated Federation of Chokoku is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Siinuupewa with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.009 billion Chokosans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, 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 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chokosue economy, worth a remarkable 1,790 trillion Choyens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 297,955 Choyens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Chokoku. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Chokoku's national animal is the Semiinjako, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chokoku is ranked 50,249th in the world and 19th in Union of Allied States for Largest Populations, with 6.01 billion Capita.
