The Blessed Masterdom of Champlost is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Infallible and Everlasting Master with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.045 billion Champlostians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Master's City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Champlostian economy, worth 946 trillion Master's Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 233,869 Master's Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,248,340 per year while the poor average 23,012, a ratio of 54.2 to 1.

People's charity begins and ends at home, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Champlost's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Righteous Orthodox Masterism.

Champlost is ranked 8,317th in the world and 13th in The Galactic Order for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 9,032.18 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
