Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend Cards


Population213 million


The People's Republic of Hoclon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 213 million Hoclonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Hoclonian economy, worth 2.07 trillion Sraetos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 9,707 Sraetos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoclon's national animal is the Owlbear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hoclon is ranked 233,433rd in the world and 8,233rd in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.09 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
