The Will of The Chariot is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Will with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.572 billion Willed are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Seat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Willful economy, worth 222 trillion cards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 141,330 cards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 710,902 per year while the poor average 15,703, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Chariot's national animal is the sphinx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Willpower.

The Chariot is ranked 94,782nd in the world and 70th in Force for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
