The Federation of Chatt is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 50 million Chattanoogans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Chattanoogan economy, worth 2.38 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,697 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygamy is legal, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, Chattanoogan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chatt's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Chatt is ranked 50,774th in the world and 114th in Sonindia for Best Weather, with 109 Meters Of Sunlight.
