The Free Territory of Chestaan is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.041 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equitopia. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.
The large but sluggish Chestaanian economy, worth 512 trillion Guevaras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 56,672 Guevaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Chestaan to be bombproof, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chestaan's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
