The Free Land of A Choille is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 545 million Choilleans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Environment, although Spirituality, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order and Administration are ignored. The average income tax rate is 40.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Choillean economy, worth 17.7 trillion seashells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Gambling, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,504 seashells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, thousands of children die every day from easily curable illnesses, bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax seashells each year. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. A Choille's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

A Choille is ranked 126,013th in the world and 4,671st in the Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.86 Kickbacks Per Hour.
