The Federal Republic of Cherlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Otto Ferdinand with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.258 billion Cherlians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonn. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cherlian economy, worth a remarkable 2,011 trillion Marks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,711 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, Cherlians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and when you fly on Air Cherlia you win a seat or you die. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cherlia's national animal is the Aquila, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Not official.

Cherlia is ranked 197,799th in the world and 25th in The Independent Nations for Most Avoided, scoring 0.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
