Diche Choklate

Population1.266 billion



The United Empire of Diche Choklate is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Disputed with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.266 billion Diche Deerfenese 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Townsville. The average income tax rate is 2.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Choklatian economy, worth 211 trillion Cashmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,878 Cashmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, the Choklatian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Diche Choklate's national animal is the lobster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Diche Choklate is ranked 17,427th in the world and 979th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 145.16 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
