The Holy Yellow Allied States of Hoffania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser President Otto Von Whilhelm with an even hand, and notable for its fear of technology, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 4.695 billion Hoffanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kapitol. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hoffanian economy, worth 478 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,839 Silver Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, the idiom 'there are plenty of fish in the sea' isn't so reassuring to Hoffanians, genetic screening weeds out citizens whose legs don't bend easily at the knee, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoffania's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Boat Mormonism.

Hoffania is ranked 5,918th in the world and 137th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cultured, scoring 138 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
