The Troutocracy of Chatula is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Trout God with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.251 billion Chatulans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Environment, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Education and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trout Storage Facility. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chatulan economy, worth 265 trillion trout a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Trout Farming, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 117,792 trout, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,062,834 per year while the poor average 1,590, a ratio of 668 to 1.

Hunters often become the hunted, it's not mass murder when the government does it, women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Chatula's national animal is the trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is trout.

Chatula is ranked 31,361st in the world and 19th in Refugia for Rudest Citizens, with 88.26 insults per minute.
