The Chelles

Population579 million



The People's Republic of The Chelles is a huge, genial nation, notable for its daily referendums, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 579 million Chellesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pygros. The average income tax rate is 13.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Chellesian economy, worth 33.9 trillion francs a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,574 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, and the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses. Crime is totally unknown. The Chelles's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Chelles is ranked 136,552nd in the world and 7,598th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
