|Faith||The Cult of Pizza|
The Holy Moldy Cheese of Churuya is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tsuruya with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.532 billion cheese chompers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cheeseville. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Churuyan economy, worth a remarkable 2,669 trillion Smoked Cheeses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 183,674 Smoked Cheeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, innocent people are routinely stoned to death by frenzied lynch mobs, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and judges are all-powerful. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Churuya's national animal is the Loco Roco, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of Pizza.
