The United States of Chricoma is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.867 billion Chricomians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stavropol. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chricomian economy, worth 736 trillion Krasnis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 83,043 Krasnis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chricoma's national animal is the Steppe wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Chricoma is ranked 156,392nd in the world and 23rd in Official European Union for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.65 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
