The Conservation Officer of Chodean Kal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal Markus Briand with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 27.03 billion Chodeani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Healthcare, although Education, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Andreisburg. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Chodeani economy, worth 981 trillion FS Credits 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 36,315 FS Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The big red machine has ground to a halt, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chodean Kal's national animal is the Libreagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dalism.

Chodean Kal is ranked 28,547th in the world and 6th in The Sasquatch Republic for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
