The Democratic Republic of Upper Chult is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 267 million Upper Chultians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Upper Chultian economy, worth 13.4 trillion Schillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 50,227 Schillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Chult's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Upper Chult is ranked 40,310th in the world and 200th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
