The Empire of United States of Chairica is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by God-Emperor Jon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.075 billion Chairicans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Industry 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 Chairican National Administration Vault. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Chairican economy, worth a remarkable 2,196 trillion Chair Legs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 271,981 Chair Legs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,883,599 per year while the poor average 13,802, a ratio of 136 to 1.

First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, the government is reining in public spending, schoolkids are often mistaken for fast food workers, and civil servants spend most their time carrying out risk assessments for paper cuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. United States of Chairica's national animal is the Sofa, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jon-ism.

United States of Chairica is ranked 1,761st in the world and 77th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 46.14 Obesity Rate.
