The Constitutional Republic of Hollabackatcha is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Daenerys Targaryen with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.925 billion Hollabackatchians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mereen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Hollabackatchan economy, worth a remarkable 4,742 trillion Stirlings a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 169,843 Stirlings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 988,047 per year while the poor average 13,801, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hollabackatcha's national animal is the Drogon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Faith of the Seven.

Hollabackatcha is ranked 257,175th in the world and 233rd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -43 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
