The Republic of Hokolokia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Citizen Prime with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.858 billion Hokolokians 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vayntrubville. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hokolokian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Milanas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,994 Milanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime is totally unknown. Hokolokia's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hokolokia is ranked 3,147th in the world and 82nd in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 622.09 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
