The Free Territory of Chestaan is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.726 billion Chestaanians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equitopia. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The strong Chestaanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,675 trillion Guevaras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is an impressive 135,651 Guevaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chestaan's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chestaan is ranked 228,323rd in the world and 5,997th in the West Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 5.53 Insults Per Minute.
