The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, cynical population of 3.813 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, socially-minded 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.

Prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business subsidies are discontinued, much of Kholdan's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. 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.

Kholdan is ranked 4,564th in the South Pacific and 118,147th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -771.25 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
