The Fifth Round of Chaprun is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 6.266 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 Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Chaprunian economy, worth 399 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, 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 63,829 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Chaprun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chaprun's national animal is the Twister.

Chaprun is ranked 98,740th in the world and 6th in Iveagh for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,679.3 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
