Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Zone Green Dominion of Chronotopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord President Salyavin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and conspicuous electricity pylons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.938 billion Chronotopiens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aion Megopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Chronotopian economy, worth an astonishing 12,963 trillion Capitols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 419,030 Capitols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, Chronotopiens are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and many marriages go virtually unconsummated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Chronotopia's national animal is the Shebogum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tempusism.

Chronotopia is ranked 26,241st in the world and 904th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 1 Stalins.
