Democratic Chanum Ter Heak

Population1.398 billion

LeaderChip Skylark


The Fun of Democratic Chanum Ter Heak is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chip Skylark with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.398 billion Democratic Chanum Ter Heakians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cyberia. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Democratic Chanum Ter Heakian economy, worth 163 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,260 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, many friends and relatives of Chip Skylark have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic Chanum Ter Heak's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is tricot.

Democratic Chanum Ter Heak is ranked 263,261st in the world and 11,521st in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.68 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
