Location: Atoria

Regional Influence: Power


The Theocracy of Chonko is a large, socially progressive nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 80 million Chonkoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The imploded Chonkoan economy, worth 576 billion bhangs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 7,203 bhangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chonko has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, babies are a small but significant export, and explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chonko's national animal is the Pizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chonko is ranked 230,026th in the world and 3rd in Atoria for Highest Economic Output, with 576 billion Standard Monetary Units.
