The Will of The Chariot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Will with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ritual sacrifices, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.431 billion Willed are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Seat. The average income tax rate is 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Willful economy, worth 620 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 140,058 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

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 34,269th in the world and 1st in vincent drake for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,487.3 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
