The Platypus infested lands of CHERN0BYL 2 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ornithorhynchus anatinus III with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.238 billion Nuclearians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Chernobyl. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nuclearian economy, worth 645 trillion Radiations a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 152,416 Radiations, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, belief that Ornithorhynchus anatinus III is a lizard-person from outer space has reached an all-time high, and the daily weather forecast often predicts light showers of debris. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CHERN0BYL 2's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The 72 Voices.

CHERN0BYL 2 is ranked 56,760th in the world and 1,768th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 112.37 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
