The Kingdom of Churumduul is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 565 million Churumduulis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aukluq. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Churumduulian economy, worth 34.0 trillion Qyarats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 60,253 Qyarats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, Churumduulian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and the government refuses to transmit electricity to secessionist regions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Churumduul's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Churumduul is ranked 158,710th in the world and 7,304th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -140.98 on the Hayek Index.
