The Territories of Tchwartzhad is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ludwig Leichhardt with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, avant-garde cinema, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.877 billion Tchwartzhadians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of October City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.0%.

The powerhouse Tchwartzhadian economy, worth 94.2 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,179 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Tchwartzhad Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, as dissatisfaction with the system waxes the only things to be sure of are death and taxes, and Ludwig Leichhardt has just been declared ruler of Tchwartzhad in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Tchwartzhad's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Tchwartzhad is ranked 59,364th in the world and 7th in Arctic for Most Pro-Market, scoring 56.33 on the Rand Index.
