The Republic of Chonovia is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 448 million Chonovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shostagrad. The average income tax rate is 23.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Chonovian economy, worth 25.9 trillion Roos a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,784 Roos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Chonovian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chonovia's national animal is the Parrot.
