The Dictatorship of Chielmany is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 139 million Chielmanyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 45.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Chielmanyian economy, worth 3.71 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,681 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chielmany's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Chielmany is ranked 116,956th in the world and 3,499th in Lazarus for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
