The Divine Abode of Churumduul is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Spiritual Council with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and fear of technology. The compassionate population of 1.063 billion Churumduulis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aukluq. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Churumduulian economy, worth 82.6 trillion Qyarats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Book Publishing. Average income is 77,741 Qyarats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, the government is avowedly secular, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Churumduul's national animal is the White deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Churumduul is ranked 1,581st in the world and 135th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 50,217 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
