The Retired Nation of Chetkosk is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chancellor Bogdan Mikhailovich with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.204 billion Chetkoskies enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlinengrad. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Chetkoski economy, worth a remarkable 1,147 trillion Chetmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 124,720 Chetmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
School uniforms are compulsory, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, and the military struggles with recruitment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chetkosk's national animal is the Tundra Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Slavic Orthodox.
