The Armed Republic of The Chuck is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Walter Sobchak with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.802 billion Chuckians 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 relatively small, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and International Aid 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 17.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Chuckian economy, worth 376 trillion APFSDS Shells 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 extensive. Average income is an amazing 208,671 APFSDS Shells, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 784,277 per year while the poor average 38,758, a ratio of 20.2 to 1.

Arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes, big game hunters travel to The Chuck to try their hand at shark-shooting, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 18,717th in the world and 1st in Northern Ocean for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,434.61 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
