The State of Chopaka is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Douglas with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18.179 billion Pakers are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paked economy, worth a remarkable 1,789 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,456 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, nations across the world are quick to praise Lord Douglas's good looks and intellectual prowess, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chopaka's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chopaka is ranked 16,694th in the world and 1st in Banana for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,456.85 Tourists Per Hour.
