The Commonwealth of Chalsardu is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Elxiras with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.061 billion Chalsardis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chalsardas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Chalsardim economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 trillion thammarches a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 299,209 thammarches, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, the government has implemented minimum wage laws, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chalsardu's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Seldarinism.

Chalsardu is ranked 16,062nd in the world and 7th in Xedas for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,851.38 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
