OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Channel Tunnel of Chunnel is a massive, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed population of 4.304 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Commerce, and Social Equality. The average income tax rate is 23%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling industries.

It is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, and even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister. Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Chunnel's national animal is the Eurotunnel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Eurostar.

Chunnel is ranked 5th in Western Europe and 45,587th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 2 Whatever.
