Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Land of Holykol is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.332 billion Holykolians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holykol City. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Holykolian economy, worth 611 trillion KOLS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 73,362 KOLS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown. Holykol's national animal is the Trololo Man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Holykol is ranked 1st in Sinope and 3,946th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 132 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
