The Armed Republic of The Chuck is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by None with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.797 billion Chuckians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charles Rock. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Chuckian economy, worth a remarkable 1,641 trillion Chuckian Argentums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 342,226 Chuckian Argentums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,655,058 per year while the poor average 41,052, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, colonials are offended to find a local animal has been re-named the 'Furry Four-Legged Marsupial Possum', and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Chuck's national animal is the Possum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

The Chuck is ranked 18,565th in the world and 3rd in Northern Ocean for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,571.6 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
