Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.888 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.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes 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 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Kholdanian economy, worth 804 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,566 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', students cut up leftover Marks during Arts and Crafts, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. 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.

Kholdan is ranked 22,145th in the world and 555th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 62,129.77 Standard Monetary Units.
