The Theocracy of Le Choix is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.126 billion Chosen are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Espoir du Ciel. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Chosen economy, worth 13.4 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 11,935 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Leader's portrait, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Le Choix's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Le Choix is ranked 84,839th in the world and 42nd in Esportiva for Longest Average Lifespans, with 72.65 years.
