The Fifth Round of Chaprun is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.384 billion Chaprunians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 48.6%.

The Chaprunian economy, worth 127 trillion Coins 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Tourism. 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 53,359 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chaprun's national animal is the Twister, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Chaprun is ranked 128,245th in the world and 3rd in Iveagh for Fattest Citizens, with 9.65 Obesity Rate.
