The United Kingdom of Chekata is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kieran Oliver with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.655 billion Chekatans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonebridge. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The all-consuming Chekatan economy, worth 663 trillion Greymers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,687 Greymers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, a degree in Kieran Oliver Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chekata's national animal is the White Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chekata is ranked 235,800th in the world and 7,616th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.34 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
