The Free Land of Holykol is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.04 billion Holykolians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holykol City. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Holykolian economy, worth 364 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 and Information Technology. Average income is 60,394 KOLS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and surveillance cameras are banned. 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 5,904th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 670.25 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
