The Democratic Federation of Holly United is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Saxon Sepulveda with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.595 billion Saxonyians 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 enormous government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Holly Unitedian economy, worth 992 trillion Blunts 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 85,620 Blunts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Holly United Blood Tithe, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holly United's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
