The Meritocratic Empire of Chols Worithopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Tobias von Menelios with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.947 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 Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lionsgate. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chols Worithopian economy, worth 779 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. Average income is an impressive 197,602 Digital Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The election for Emperor Tobias von Menelios's office's janitor is heating up, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies". 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Orthodox Catholicism.

Chols Worithopia is ranked 6,534th in the world and 135th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 197,602.39 Standard Monetary Units.
