The Realm of Chalan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pedro Hill Carlos with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.604 billion Chalanians 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saipan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Chalanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,514 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 229,380 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBC Governor goes house hunting, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, and Chalanian diplomacy is by the book. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chalan's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anime.

Chalan is ranked 3,758th in the world and 100th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 135.46 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
