The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.995 billion Kholdanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, although Welfare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Administration is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The strong Kholdanian economy, worth 987 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 82,364 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. 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 14,870th in the world and 391st in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 241.37 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
