The Federation of Charest is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chan dhu Phet with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.087 billion Charestians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kavabrasik. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Charestian economy, worth 146 trillion Charest Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 70,258 Charest Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charest's national animal is the Blue Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Charest is ranked 75,206th in the world and 3,369th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 58.79 Insults Per Minute.
