The Semi-Confederated Federation of Chokoku is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Siinuupewa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.96 billion Chokosans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chosai. The average income tax rate is 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Chokosue economy, worth a remarkable 1,773 trillion Choyens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 297,562 Choyens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and burglary is widely regarded as the national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Chokoku's national animal is the Semiinjako, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chokoku is ranked 276th in the world and 1st in Union of Allied States for Rudest Citizens, with 557 Insults Per Minute.
