The Republic of Chalan is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 384 million Chalanians 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 Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saipan. The average income tax rate is 53.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Chalanian economy, worth 39.3 trillion Moneroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,273 Moneroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, economists claim no news is good news, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chalan's national animal is the Mariana Fruit Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Chalan is ranked 64,987th in the world and 3,139th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.63 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
