The Sovereign Shores of Cheye is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Viceroy Jan Gianni with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.923 billion Cheyevians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Providence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cheyevian economy, worth a remarkable 1,271 trillion Knaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 128,182 Knaves, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 867,958 per year while the poor average 6,972, a ratio of 124 to 1.

People believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and the nation is Latica's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Cheye's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Cheye is ranked 122,201st in the world and 2nd in Latica for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 746.47 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
