The Principality of Ciodiw is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.168 billion Ciodiwians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scientia. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ciodiwian economy, worth 109 trillion baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,095 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, copyright laws have been abolished, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ciodiw's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ciodiw is ranked 218,731st in the world and 132nd in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.44 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
