Das holleloch

Population56 million


The Republic of Das holleloch is a large, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 56 million Das Hollelochians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 16.6%.

The Das hollelochian economy, worth 2.90 trillion Den'gis a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 51,702 Den'gis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Harry Potter books are banned, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Das holleloch's national animal is the Bear.

Das holleloch is ranked 100,256th in the world and 3rd in Fines Aurum for Most Inclusive, scoring 103.37 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.

Largest Pizza Delivery Sector: 6,836th
