|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the South Pacific
The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. Its compassionate, cynical population of 3.051 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, all news sources are under strict government control, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals. 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, its national religion is Gallifreyan mysticism, and its currency is the Mark.
