The Ever Disapproving Republic of Charons Dusk is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Radiance with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.27 billion Aquas are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charon City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Aquas economy, worth a remarkable 2,268 trillion Bswins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 184,900 Bswins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, anti-vaxxers are right about the government injecting diseases into people, criminals are thrown to the Hyenas to repay their debt to society, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charons Dusk's national animal is the Hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hate-Everyone-ology.

Charons Dusk is ranked 186,465th in the world and 4,893rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5.67 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
