The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.252 billion Kholdanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Welfare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.
The very strong Kholdanian economy, worth 554 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 88,669 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and Zghuk Whitescull's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kholdan's national animal is the Osprey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gallifreyan mysticism.
