The Queendom of Charlia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Amelia with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 8.99 billion Charlians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hinamizawa. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Charlian economy, worth 502 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 55,938 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, government ministers claim to ride dragons to work, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charlia's national animal is the Incubator, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Despair.

Charlia is ranked 28,508th in the world and 3rd in Autism Spectrum for Highest Economic Output, with 502 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
