OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Free Territory of Chestaan is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5.535 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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, liberal, 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.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, 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, and Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament. 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 4,508th in the West Pacific and 122,435th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -18 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
