The Dictatorship of New CHOP is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 177 million New CHOPians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New CHOPian economy, worth 7.34 trillion Chicken Heads 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 41,484 Chicken Heads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Leader wears an armoured gauntlet, state media insists that Leader is the most fashionable leader in 10000 Islands, and single celebrities have to repeatedly prove their chastity to avoid being married off to infatuated fans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New CHOP's national animal is the Hyena, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New CHOP is ranked 19,365th in the world and 175th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,967.45 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
