The Holy Empire of Chubz is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 483 million Chubies are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chodestrokesville. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Chubzian economy, worth 35.3 trillion Willies 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 73,077 Willies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, hospitals in Chubz are too busy serving the needs of Cyride to see Chubies, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Chubz. Crime is totally unknown. Chubz's national animal is the Sea Cucumber, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Chubz is ranked 38,100th in the world and 2nd in Cyride for Most Developed, scoring 61.75 on the Human Development Index.
