Hollow Forest Pack

Population4.096 billion

CapitalHollow Bastion
LeaderLord Sora of the Keyblade


The Empire of Hollow Forest Pack is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Sora of the Keyblade with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.096 billion Hollow Forest Packians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollow Bastion. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hollow Forest Packian economy, worth 429 trillion Munnies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,881 Munnies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hollow Forest Pack's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hollow Forest Pack is ranked 127,967th in the world and 4,186th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.07 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
