The Free Land of Chris Hall is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Squish-lord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.621 billion Chris Hallians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wherever the Squish-lord lives. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Chris Hallian economy, worth an astonishing 22,516 trillion money is redundants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 786,717 money is redundants, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,471,036 per year while the poor average 39,401, a ratio of 138 to 1.

Policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', agricultural employees work for peanuts, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, and every fourth child is born with flippers instead of hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Chris Hall's national animal is the free man, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money Money Money.

Chris Hall is ranked 209,743rd in the world and 5,212th in the Rejected Realms for Safest, scoring 1.59 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
