The United Socialist States of Kholdan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zghuk Whitescull with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, triple-decker prams, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 18.764 billion Kholdanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kholdan City. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Kholdanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,763 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 94,008 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Gallifreyan mysticism.

Kholdan is ranked 199,523rd in the world and 6,878th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,357.43 Standard Monetary Units.
