The Federation of New Chautaqua is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Gustav Mahler with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.136 billion New Chautaquans 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chernenko. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and students cut up leftover Rubles during Arts and Crafts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Chautaqua's national animal is the Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Buddhism, and its currency is the Ruble.

New Chautaqua is ranked 48th in Yggdrasil and 13,852nd in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 22.099 Insults Per Minute (net).
