The Christmas Nutella Republic of Ka Ching is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ceo Satya Nutella with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.208 billion Ka Chingians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Liloy. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ka Chingian economy, worth a remarkable 1,630 trillion Nutella sweetened hazelnut cocoa spreads a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 313,055 Nutella sweetened hazelnut cocoa spreads, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,862,826 per year while the poor average 3,715, a ratio of 770 to 1.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ka Ching's national animal is the Green Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order of the Money.

Ka Ching is ranked 55,687th in the world and 405th in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 61.96 on the Human Development Index.
