The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 6.82 billion Kholdanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
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, with Defense, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.
The very strong Kholdanian economy, worth 589 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 86,382 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Zghuk Whitescull's mistress is the belle at many state balls, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, the state pays for care of easily preventable illnesses, and concussed Ospreyball players cannot remember their lineup position. 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.
