The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.107 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 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Kholdanian economy, worth 793 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 87,147 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Zghuk Whitescull's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, dining out often involves Ospreys on the plate no matter what you order, and annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt. 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.
