The Republic of KhalChicken is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Choox with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.086 billion Chicken Slayers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egg Yolk. The average income tax rate is 41.5%.

The frighteningly efficient KhalChickenian economy, worth 182 trillion Nuggets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 168,227 Nuggets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers, and shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. KhalChicken's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

KhalChicken is ranked 120,637th in the world and 5,607th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
