The Union State of Chkalovsk II is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Name with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.251 billion Chkalovskians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The strong Chkalovsk IIian economy, worth 319 trillion Chkalovskian Rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 75,158 Chkalovskian Rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 551,780 per year while the poor average 3,131, a ratio of 176 to 1.

Polygamy is legal, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, and citizens must pay to enjoy Chkalovsk II's pristine beaches. Crime is a problem. Chkalovsk II's national animal is the Chkalovskian Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox Christianity.

Chkalovsk II is ranked 10,033rd in the world and 2nd in The Eurasian Confederation for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,964.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
