The Classic Liberal Chiefs of The Traditional States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bruce Springsteen with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.412 billion Dolorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chiefiton DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dolorian economy, worth 325 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 134,933 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 463,717 per year while the poor average 28,791, a ratio of 16.1 to 1.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Traditional States's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Chiefism.

The Traditional States is ranked 88,865th in the world and 141st in New Western Empire for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,091.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
