The Chaotic Oligarchy of Dreams and Parachutes is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jojo McCue with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.225 billion Dreams and Parachutesians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized individuals prioritizes Industry, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Anarchy. Income tax is unheard of.

The powerhouse Dreams and Parachutesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,361 trillion scooters a year, is driven entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 111,362 scooters, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 331,117 per year while the poor average 29,364, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Dreams and Parachutes's national animal is the chipmunk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Neo Liberism.

Dreams and Parachutes is ranked 15th in Marathon and 112,700th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -128 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
