Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Former Republic of Cherdoskie is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Herr Desgoff und Gottschalk with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 15.117 billion Cherdoskieans 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neblesbad. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cherdoskiean economy, worth a remarkable 1,923 trillion Kulbecks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,236 Kulbecks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cherdoskie's national animal is the Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox.

Cherdoskie is ranked 144,607th in the world and 102nd in Equestria for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
