The Commonwealth of Chalsardu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Elxiras with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.46 billion Chalsardis 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chalsardas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Chalsardim economy, worth 934 trillion thammarches a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 269,978 thammarches, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,331,318 per year while the poor average 31,191, a ratio of 42.7 to 1.

The meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, immigrants who don't like the taste of Chalsardim Turnip Chips are immediately deported, the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million, and punitive tariffs protect local industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chalsardu's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Seldarinism.

Chalsardu is ranked 7,010th in the world and 2nd in Xedas for Fattest Citizens, with 19.08 Obesity Rate.
