Check your batt & cables & numerous ground connections. Clean and tighten all- even if they look OK put a wrench to them and give a twist to tighten them.

You have 2 fuse panels- one under the dash and the other over the passenger side firewall. I would start by removing each fuse one at a time, inspecting each fuse visually and with a continuity (ohms) tester. Then take a pink pearl eraser and clean the wafer tips of each fuse before replacing them to the same place you removed the fuse. If you find a burnt fuse replace it WITH THE EXACT SAME AMP RATED FUSE (making a note of the circuit it is for)- likewise if any fuse fails the continuity test.

If you have good grounds and clean connections to the positive (don't forget to check the alternator plugs) and all your fuses are clean and in good working order then the next thing to check for are the relays and the ignition switch

Don't just start taking the steering column apart to get to the switch, however, because you will have to disengage the airbag deployment circuit before fooling around in there. Your Haynes or Honda shop manual should walk you through that.

In addition there are relays that click in the firewall fuseblock under the hood. Check your manuals for procedure to test these as they relate to ignition and or starting circuits and may be your trouble.

If you hear clicks at the relay when turning the ignition on- without starting- then these are probably OK and so is your ignition switch- at least for the ignition only setting.

Another problem I've had with my old Civic is that the interlocks get a little squirrely from time to time. Make sure you have your foot on the brake, your trans in park or neutral, etc. If you have an auto transmission there is a slot to release the shift lever- stick your key in it and run the shifter through all the gears a couple times. Sometimes I have to yank the steering wheel back and forth hard to get the ignition switch to fully engage or to even turn. This is what I do when I get nothing and hear no initial clicks or when my key won't turn. Every once in a while it just plays dead, but unjamming the interlock devices always brings it back for me. I have over 120k miles, but this has happened every once in a blue moon since it was new.
Good Luck, let me know how it goes. If this fixes ya then please rate this solution. If not, then post an update of your results and findings and we'll get deeper into it.

Near the shifter there is a cap, remove it with a small screwdriver and insert your key or the screwdriver. While pushing it in, you will be able to shift into neutral.

My car won't start as if the battery is dead, however, the battery charger says it's fully charged.

check all fuses yet.?

your battery charger is not capable of testing any battery, unless it has a load bank built in, i bet yours dont.

so its really not a no start its a no crank.
no car starts, or runs or sustains, unless cranked,
(my in m/t car so can be push started or gravity started)

so why not use jumper cables. this ends 1/2 the guessing here.
it cranks ok, yes? that means the battery was bad, or only discharged
if yes, get battery load bank tested. (all autostores do this for free)
NO crankl
then we next hot wire the starter solenoid.
it cranks fast (engine) the starter is good and the key line is bad.
it dont crank hot wired, the starter is bad engine seized.
now see here all the tricks for fooling the key line.
see em'?

and the hot wire, method in vivid details.
each step , solves this riddle. no matter the cause.

Your battery power has been drained. First thing I would do is to charge the battery via using another car to jump start the car and let it run for an hour or two. Or get a charger and jump the car. Either way I would run it for an hour or two recharge the battery. If that doesn't work then you will have to replace the battery.
