The Meritocratic Empire of Chols Worithopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Tobias von Menelios with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.16 billion Chols Worithopians 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.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lionsgate. The average income tax rate is 84.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Chols Worithopian economy, worth 394 trillion Digital Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,608 Digital Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chols Worithopia's national animal is the White Speckled Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Orthodox Catholicism.

Chols Worithopia is ranked 787th in the world and 18th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 14,895.96 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
