The Ban Hammer of Chus Kruthe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Peter Maholm with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.701 billion Chus Krutheans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Chus Kruthean economy, worth 776 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 165,194 baht, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, nations that kill a Chus Kruthean can expect a strongly worded letter, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chus Kruthe's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Calvinist Christianity.

Chus Kruthe is ranked 97,156th in the world and 2,779th in Balder for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 67.33 Workforce Participation Rate.
