The Parliamentary Democracy of Springhollow is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister TM with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.144 billion citizens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Springhollowian economy, worth 199 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,171 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Springhollow's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is atheism.

Springhollow is ranked 9,169th in the world and 297th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,299.96 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
