The Fifth Round of Chaprun is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, disturbing lack of elderly people, and infamous sell-swords. The democratic population of 5.216 billion Chaprunians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Chaprunian economy, worth 324 trillion Coins 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 black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. 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 62,233 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, trade deals are born to the sound of a royal woman's anguished screams, and drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chaprun's national animal is the Twister, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Chaprun is ranked 236,934th in the world and 7th in Iveagh for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -10.62 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
