The Republic of Choushuu is a massive, safe nation, ruled by D'Argo Crichton with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.868 billion Roushis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aizu Hanshi. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choushuuan economy, worth 233 trillion Ryous 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 125,114 Ryous, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

T-shirts displaying a photo of D'Argo Crichton performing the Full-Monty are selling out, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, Roushis refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Choushuu's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Choushuu is ranked 113,220th in the world and 4,948th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 45.44 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
