The Free Territory of Chestaan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.665 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, socially-minded, 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 99.4%.
The enormous but inefficient Chestaanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,227 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 96,894 Guevaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, religious education is a new government priority, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. 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.
