The Republic of Cwh35 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.408 billion Cwh35ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.9%.

The powerhouse Cwh35ian economy, worth 133 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,037 francs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 304,698 per year while the poor average 22,485, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cwh35's national animal is the kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cwh35 is ranked 27,490th in the world and 16th in Crestwood Heights for Lowest Crime Rates, with 76.4 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
