The Republic of Outer Chora Lake is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 520 million Outer Chora Lakeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boat house. The average income tax rate is 64.7%.

The very strong Outer Chora Lakean economy, worth 39.0 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,941 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, no one is worried about government policies any more, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, and Outer Chora Lake has been greatly criticised for its isolationist policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Chora Lake's national animal is the purple hyena, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Outer Chora Lake is ranked 166,974th in the world and 514th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Influential, scoring 25 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
