The Lawful Nation of Chicago2 is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Salad Barbarian with a fair hand, and notable for its superstitious fear of technology. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.739 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mountain Top. The average income tax rate is 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Contrails and thunderous rumbles have returned to the skies above, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, unemployment rates have skyrocketed as businesses abandon the country in search of cheap labour, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Chicago2's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is none, and its currency is the Justcoin.

Chicago2 is ranked 7th in A Nice Warm Cave and 101,892nd in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -2 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
