The Republic of Chocolavie is a large, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 98 million Chocolavieans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Chocolaviean economy, worth 2.86 trillion Cocoas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 29,186 Cocoas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and Chocolavie's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chocolavie's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chocolavie is ranked 23,670th in the world and 102nd in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 75.97 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
