The Commonwealth of Cheloboria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Elect with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.913 billion Cheloborians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tortoburg. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cheloborian economy, worth 612 trillion Shells a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,652 Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Tortoburg's playgrounds, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Cheloboria after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cheloboria's national animal is the Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Maguffinism.

Cheloboria is ranked 236,113th in the world and 424th in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 3.36 Obesity Rate.
