The Republic of Chriona is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 429 million Chrionans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Chrionan economy, worth 25.0 trillion Krions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 58,315 Krions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sentenced to death, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and Chriona has designated Chriona City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chriona's national animal is the Sheba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chriona is ranked 103,613th in the world and 3,964th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 807.25 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
