Charming Strain

Population3.374 billion


The Republic of Charming Strain is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.374 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 medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 36.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Charming Strainian economy, worth 166 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 49,445 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, Charming Strainian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, and politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

Charming Strain is ranked 37,331st in the world and 1st in Association of NonBinary Rulers for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.35 Bank.
