The Militarist Kingdom of Hoile is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by King Albert II with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 760 million Hoilists have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starstead. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hoilean economy, worth 79.9 trillion Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,133 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, King Albert II has just been declared ruler of Hoile in an international press conference, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Pound battlesuits, and shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities. 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 9,848th in the world and 195th in the West Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 14.97 bananas ingested per day.
