The Republic of Chan Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jorge Shaft with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 7.432 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Channing Townton. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Chan Islander economy, worth 694 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. 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 93,457 Shiny Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

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 The Great Hatred.

Chan Island is ranked 154,186th in the world and 189th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
