OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.28 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 98%. 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.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Mark mansions, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, Kholdan's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, and graffiti graces every city's 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 4,303rd in the South Pacific and 118,377th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
