The Republic of Aholz is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The All Powerful Oz with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.382 billion Aholzians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 4,168 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 336,660 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime is moderate, 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 172,351st in the world and 186th in Texas for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 0.56 Effective Tax Rate.
