The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.043 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, with Welfare, Defense, 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 96.2%.
The very strong Kholdanian economy, worth 528 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 87,486 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Kholdan after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, judges are all-powerful, and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. 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.
