The Meritocratic Empire of Chols Worithopia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Tobias von Menelios with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.366 billion Chols Worithopians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lionsgate. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chols Worithopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,065 trillion Digital Florins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 198,494 Digital Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", the Chols Worithopian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chols Worithopia's national animal is the White Speckled Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Orthodox Catholicism.

Chols Worithopia is ranked 51,925th in the world and 1,729th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,697.56 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
