The Republic of Aholz is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The All Powerful Oz with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.894 billion Aholzians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aholzian economy, worth a remarkable 3,447 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 316,462 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Aholz with a very polite populace, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aholz's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is People decide what or who they worship.

Aholz is ranked 615th in the world and 3rd in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 389.91 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
