The Armed Republic of The Chuck is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Walter Sobchak with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.495 billion Chuckians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charles Rock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Chuckian economy, worth 608 trillion Chuckian Argentums a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 243,809 Chuckian Argentums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,329,691 per year while the poor average 22,911, a ratio of 58.0 to 1.

Teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled The Chuck with a very polite populace, gigantic new prisons are springing up all over the nation, and jaywalking will put an end to a family tree. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Chuck's national animal is the Possum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Chuck is ranked 148,233rd in the world and 5th in Northern Ocean for Most Primitive, scoring -292.05 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
