The Hidden Pirate Cove of Chan Island is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jackie Chan with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.722 billion Chan Islanders 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Channing Townton. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Chan Islander economy, worth a remarkable 1,024 trillion Shiny Things 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 87,384 Shiny Things, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, official Sermon-Free Zones are set-up around the nation's hotels, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chan Island's national animal is the Axe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Money.

Chan Island is ranked 18,055th in the world and 112th in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 1,024 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
