The Grand Duchy of Chareest is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.791 billion Chareestians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Chareestian economy, worth 281 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 58,712 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Smoking is banned in public areas, Chareest is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and Chareest City spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chareest's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chareest is ranked 25,390th in the world and 580th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 106.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
