The Matriarchy of Chereka is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Artemis with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 5.325 billion Cherekans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luna. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The large but inefficient Cherekan economy, worth 301 trillion Miesis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 56,670 Miesis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chereka's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Moon Worship.

Chereka is ranked 200,619th in the world and 375th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
