The Earthly Walk of The Choir Boy is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Howard Lord of Creation with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.313 billion Choirboys are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Lord Howard. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Choirboy economy, worth a remarkable 7,584 trillion moolah from howards a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 339,919 moolah from howards, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,183,680 per year while the poor average 3,060, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air The Choir Boy flights to avoid the pay lavatories, Choirboy watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, taxi drivers seem less xenophobic these days, and everyone apparently sends Howard Lord of Creation hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Choir Boy's national animal is the pious pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Howardism the Only True Path.

The Choir Boy is ranked 166,668th in the world and 58th in Nudist Dreamland for Most Average, scoring 15.01 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
