The Will of The Chariot is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Will with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.662 billion Willed are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Seat. The average income tax rate is 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Willful economy, worth 652 trillion cards 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 impressive 140,058 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Chariot's national animal is the sphinx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Willpower.

The Chariot is ranked 3,843rd in the world and 1st in vincent drake for Most Armed, with 11.95 Weapons Per Person.
