The Armed Republic of The Chuck is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by None with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.004 billion Chuckians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charles Rock. The average income tax rate is 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Chuckian economy, worth a remarkable 1,734 trillion Chuckian Argentums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 346,560 Chuckian Argentums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Chuck's national animal is the Possum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Chuck is ranked 18,497th in the world and 4th in Northern Ocean for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,513.62 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
