The Azdov Empire of Chesmo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Wush't'po with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.959 billion Azdoves 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Azdov Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Chesmian economy, worth 713 trillion Karwas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 119,737 Karwas, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, Chesmian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, Chesmian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chesmo's national animal is the Lune'k, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is I'awaism.

Chesmo is ranked 208,926th in the world and 7,130th in Balder for Most Influential, scoring 11 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
