The Republic of Chavante is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Galvan with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.765 billion Chavanteans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chacarrama. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Chavantean economy, worth a remarkable 2,453 trillion Medals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 279,939 Medals, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,259,725 per year while the poor average 38,377, a ratio of 32.8 to 1.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and government officials across Chavante are being "encouraged" to adopt Owls to set an example for the populace. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Chavante's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is All religion.

Chavante is ranked 967th in the world and 42nd in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 91.11 Workforce Participation Rate.
