The Kingdom of Chalfantia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Grand Duke with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 18.104 billion Chalfantians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The strong Chalfantian economy, worth a remarkable 1,100 trillion Gold Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 60,791 Gold Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and The Grand Duke's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Chalfantia's national animal is the Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Chalfantia is ranked 148,464th in the world and 16th in Hiyamashu for Rudest Citizens, with 41.6 insults per minute.
