Cham Cha

Population780 million


The Free Land of Cham Cha is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 780 million Cham Chans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 60.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cham Chan economy, worth 39.5 trillion Chas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 50,660 Chas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and being Leader has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cham Cha's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cham Cha is ranked 74,036th in the world and 3,596th in The East Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 14.64 average smiles per day.
