The Rampant Fish Crime of Chatula is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by trout god with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 796 million Chatulans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The large, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and International Aid. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Endless Fish Heist. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Chatulan economy, worth 73.5 trillion trout a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 92,318 trout, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 766,267 per year while the poor average 2,235, a ratio of 342 to 1.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season, news editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing trout god tend to disappear, and politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe". Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Chatula's national animal is the trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Chatula is ranked 8,995th in the world and 17th in Refugia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,455.82 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
