Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Holykol is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.84 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 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Holykolian economy, worth 653 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 73,965 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 21,584th in the world and 2nd in Sinope for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,514.29 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
