The Syndicalist-Marxist Union of Chowkaria is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The quiet, industrious population of 744 million Chowkarites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rappórtia. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Chowkarian economy, worth 65.2 trillion Chowkarian Dollars 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 87,610 Chowkarian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The CBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, euthanasia is legal, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chowkaria's national animal is the Guppy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chowkaria is ranked 82,918th in the world and 21st in The Atlantic Socialist Alliance for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 105,606.22 Standard Monetary Units.
