The Armed Republic of The Chuck is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Walter Sobchak with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.519 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, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, 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 617 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 244,974 Chuckian Argentums, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,347,023 per year while the poor average 22,615, a ratio of 59.6 to 1.

The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in The Chuck' is a smash hit, you're only as old as you feel, traffic tickets are punishable by 9000 push-ups, and new urban roads are threatening city parks. 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 4,078th in the world and 1st in Northern Ocean for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,863.97 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
