The United Combines of Chaucerin is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Director-General with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 26.332 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 tiny 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 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Chaucerinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,861 trillion Equiliants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,631 Equiliants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chaucerin is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 189,938th in the world and 77th in Equilism for Highest Drug Use, scoring 38.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
