The Republic of Chonovia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dmitri Petrov with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.098 billion Chonovians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shostagrad. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Chonovian economy, worth 131 trillion Ruses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,497 Ruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, movie references are legally admissible in court, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chonovia's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
