The Holy Easter Tribe of Simbolon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tina Simbolon with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.475 billion Bolonians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samosir City. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bolonian economy, worth 340 trillion Sims a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,665 Sims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", and tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Simbolon's national animal is the Coelacanth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Simbolon is ranked 71,038th in the world and 174th in Forest for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 164,461 Standard Monetary Units.
