Chukstik Illahi

Population11.608 billion

CapitalQ'alis Illahi

AnimalOrca -whale

The Cascadian State of Chukstik Illahi is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.608 billion Chukstikians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Q'alis Illahi. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Chukstikian economy, worth a remarkable 3,996 trillion Chickamins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 344,288 Chickamins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime is totally unknown. Chukstik Illahi's national animal is the Orca -whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Chukstik Illahi is ranked 247th in the world and 16th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.85 Years.
