The Unified Kingdoms of Chackle is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Comrac Tryion with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.13 billion Chackleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fyresk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Chacklean economy, worth a remarkable 2,695 trillion Chacklean Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 331,562 Chacklean Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, emojis are the soul of wit, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, and doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chackle's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Simulist Church.

Chackle is ranked 723rd in the world and 1st in Selene for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 14,769.33 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
