The Republic of Aholz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The All Powerful Oz with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.28 billion Aholzians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt 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 3,637 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 322,443 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and the Aholzian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. 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 37,383rd in the world and 49th in Texas for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,436.49 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
