The Free Territory of Chestaan is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.985 billion Chestaanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equitopia. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, Chestaan's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown. Chestaan's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Guevara.

Chestaan is ranked 21st in the West Pacific and 1,960th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 145 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
