Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Zone Green Dominion of Chronotopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord President Salyavin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.416 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 aren't funded at all. 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 12,749 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 419,162 Capitols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, contestants on Chronotopia's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders. 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 1,330th in the world and 71st in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15,308.15 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
