The United Combines of Chaucerin is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chancellor with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 29.98 billion Chaucerinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hauxland. The average income tax rate is 11.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Chaucerinian economy, worth a remarkable 4,340 trillion Equiliants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 144,769 Equiliants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chaucerin's national animal is the Baalrog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chaucerin is ranked 254,097th in the world and 101st in Equilism for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
