The People's Republic of Chernaya Zvezda is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The People's Assembly with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 904 million Chernaya Zvezdans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komfortnyy Noy. The average income tax rate is 42.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Chernaya Zvezdan economy, worth 54.5 trillion Dengis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 60,235 Dengis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Chernaya Zvezda's hospitals, the logging industry is celebrating as tourists plaster Chernaya Zvezda with trees, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chernaya Zvezda's national animal is the Chinchilla.

Chernaya Zvezda is ranked 63,600th in the world and 2,083rd in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.65 law-abiding acts per hour.
