The Chaotic Oligarchy of Dreams and Parachutes is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jojo McCue with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.514 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, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Healthcare, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Anarchy. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology industries.

The explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Dreams and Parachutes, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Dreams and Parachutes's national animal is the chipmunk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Neo Liberism, and its currency is the scooter.

Dreams and Parachutes is ranked 15th in Marathon and 110,378th in the world for Best Weather, with -328 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
