The Commonwealth of Chalsardu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Elxiras with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.71 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, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chalsardas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chalsardim economy, worth a remarkable 1,016 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 274,004 thammarches, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,410,071 per year while the poor average 29,081, a ratio of 48.5 to 1.

Kindergartners love the free balloons that their schools give them, the fishing lobby has stemmed the tide of environmental regulations, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 126,025th in the world and 31st in Xedas for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 59.69 on the Hayek Index.
