The Free Land of Chris Hall is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Squish-lord with an iron fist, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.894 billion Chris Hallians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wherever the Squish-lord lives. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, citizens are forbidden from leaving the country, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Chris Hall's national animal is the free man, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Money Money Money, and its currency is the money is redundant.

Chris Hall is ranked 1st in the West Pacific and 69th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 2,150 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
