The Cherlia's Legion of Cherlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cherlia with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.449 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortification Hill. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cherlian economy, worth a remarkable 2,177 trillion Riels 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 174,913 Riels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secular.

Cherlia is ranked 1,448th in the world and 3rd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 7,365.28 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
