The People's Indochinese Union of Cherlia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ho Chi Minh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.419 billion Cherlians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hanoi. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cherlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 trillion Dongs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 160,522 Dongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cherlia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Not official.

Cherlia is ranked 8,243rd in the world and 5th in Union of Liberal Nations for Most Developed, scoring 88.37 on the Human Development Index.
