The Empire of Charmera is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Joseph Valhiem with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.19 billion Charmerans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Char. The average income tax rate is 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Charmeran economy, worth a remarkable 2,111 trillion Viers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,826 Viers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Emperor Joseph Valhiem, when you fly on Air Charmera you win a seat or you die, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charmera's national animal is the Wolverine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Charmera is ranked 71,652nd in the world and 9th in The Council of The Multiverse for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 57.52 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
