The Republic of Charming Strain is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 4.245 billion Charming Strainians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Charming Strainian economy, worth 242 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,144 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government spends millions of pesos every year prosecuting spammers, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charming Strain's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
