The Desolation Dominion of Chronotopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God Emperor Salyavin with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and conspicuous electricity pylons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 41.37 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, moralistic, 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 18,295 trillion Capitols a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 442,237 Capitols, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban. 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 Shobogum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tempusanity.

Chronotopia is ranked 259,663rd in the world and 7,002nd in Osiris for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -211 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
