The Former Republic of Cherdoskie is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Herr Desgoff und Gottschalk with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.202 billion Cherdoskieans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neblesbad. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cherdoskiean economy, worth a remarkable 3,085 trillion Kulbecks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,966 Kulbecks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, and people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cherdoskie's national animal is the Pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox.

Cherdoskie is ranked 177,459th in the world and 67th in Equestria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.95 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
