Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 10.918 billion Kholdanians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, with Welfare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The thriving Kholdanian economy, worth 953 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 87,336 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Zghuk Whitescull's questionably sane new coalition partners, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kholdan's national animal is the Osprey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gallifreyan mysticism.

Kholdan is ranked 146,654th in the world and 5,787th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 Crimes Per Hour.
