The Empire of Cherepakha is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Tj Yoshihiro with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.351 billion Cherepakhans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Cherepakhan economy, worth 846 trillion Eggs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 101,392 Eggs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Tj Yoshihiro, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and in court almost every witness is a hostile witness. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cherepakha's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Pakhlim.

Cherepakha is ranked 11,153rd in the world and 1st in Lily for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 116.25 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
