The Semi-Confederated Federation of Chokoku is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Siinuupewa with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.807 billion Chokosans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chosai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Chokosue economy, worth a remarkable 1,776 trillion Choyens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 305,894 Choyens, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,169,390 per year while the poor average 55,294, a ratio of 21.1 to 1.

Rumor has it that King Siinuupewa has won three lotteries in a row, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Chosai Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown. Chokoku's national animal is the Semiinjako, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chokoku is ranked 1,466th in the world and 2nd in Union of Allied States for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.17 million Standard Monetary Units.
