The New Unified Republic of Point Chayenne is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.16 billion Chayennans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Environment is also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Point Chayennean economy, worth 152 trillion Bread Tokens a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 131,191 Bread Tokens, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 918,067 per year while the poor average 6,439, a ratio of 142 to 1.

The government refuses to transmit electricity to secessionist regions, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children, and concussed White Swimming Eelball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Point Chayenne's national animal is the White Swimming Eel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Point Chayenne is ranked 11,751st in the world and 130th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.96 Whatever.
