The Holy Red Zombie Excellence of ChasingLola is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by NKBlue with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.408 billion ChasingLolans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NKBlue City. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ChasingLolan economy, worth a remarkable 5,524 trillion stangias a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 217,450 stangias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ChasingLola's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

ChasingLola is ranked 92,280th in the world and 25th in Taijitu for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 33,487.41 Standard Monetary Units.
