The Militarist Kingdom of Hoile is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Albert II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.9 billion Hoilists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starstead. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hoilean economy, worth 545 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,917 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables, commemoration of the Great the West Pacific War costs almost as much as the war itself, and Hoile has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoile's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hoile is ranked 195,026th in the world and 2,429th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.67 on the Rand Index.
