The Republic of Charming Strain is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.005 billion Charming Strainians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Charming Strainian economy, worth 128 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,868 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, fish with fish chips have become the new Charming Strainian food staple, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charming Strain's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Charming Strain is ranked 65,185th in the world and 1st in 0527 Oriental plover for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,984.34 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.

Most Primitive: 10,385th
