Democratic Chanum Ter Heak

Population1.14 billion

LeaderChip Skylark


The Republic of Democratic Chanum Ter Heak is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.14 billion Democratic Chanum Ter Heakians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyberia. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The powerhouse Democratic Chanum Ter Heakian economy, worth 115 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,173 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic Chanum Ter Heak's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Democratic Chanum Ter Heak is ranked 46,621st in the world and 1,173rd in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 93.3 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
