The Holy Red Zombie Excellence of ChasingLola is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by NKBlue with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 27.841 billion ChasingLolans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NKBlue City. The average income tax rate is 45.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ChasingLolan economy, worth a remarkable 7,531 trillion stangias a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 270,519 stangias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of ChasingLolan democracy, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime is totally unknown. 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 248th in the world and 1st in Taijitu for Most Developed, scoring 99.21 on the Human Development Index.
