The Republic of Aholz is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The All Powerful Oz with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.626 billion Aholzians 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 tiny, corrupt government 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 3,849 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 331,101 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. 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 1,236th in the world and 5th in Texas for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 15,238.36 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
