The Radio Silence of CHERN0BYL 2 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by deceased with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.189 billion Irradiated 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underground Chernobyl. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.5%.

The thriving Irradiated economy, worth 147 trillion Radiations a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,791 Radiations, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from deceased's rear echelons, billions of Radiations are spent to take high-quality photos of the Platypus Nebula, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CHERN0BYL 2's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Cult of Radiation.

CHERN0BYL 2 is ranked 125,792nd in the world and 5,413th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 29.52 Effective Tax Rate.
