The Republic of Chriona is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 102 million Chrionans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Chrionan economy, worth 5.27 trillion Krions 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 Trout Farming, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. 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 51,690 Krions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, you can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally, Chrionans caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chriona's national animal is the Sheba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chriona is ranked 191,352nd in the world and 7,374th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -85.29 on the Rand Index.
