The Parliamentary Democracy of Springhollow is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister TM with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.625 billion citizens are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, 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 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Springhollowian economy, worth 147 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 90,596 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags. 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 226,733rd in the world and 8,453rd in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -19.29 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
