LeaderBarren Rafiq


The Nationalist State of Chazagha is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Barren Rafiq with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.081 billion Chazaghans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Signarok City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chazaghan economy, worth a remarkable 1,122 trillion Dikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 275,134 Dikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chazagha's national animal is the iguagana, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chazaghaism.

Chazagha is ranked 42,678th in the world and 2,375th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
