Cherson is a growing, developing, and maturing nation at 43 days old with citizens primarily of Greek ethnicity whose religion is Baha'i Faith. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay moderately high tax rates and they are somewhat unhappy in their work environments as a result. The citizens of Cherson work diligently to produce Coal and Wine as tradable resources for their nation. It is a mostly neutral country when it comes to foreign affairs. It will usually only attack another nation if attacked first. When it comes to nuclear weapons Cherson will not research or develop nuclear weapons. Plans are on the way within Cherson to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Cherson allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Cherson believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Cherson will trade with other nations with questionable ethical treatment of their citizens but prefers to keep such trade agreements a secret.
