LeaderPrime Minister TM


The Constitutional Monarchy of Springhollow is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister TM with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 965 million citizens 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldacre. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Springhollowian economy, worth 78.0 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,854 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Springhollowian language, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime is totally unknown. Springhollow's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Springhollow is ranked 100,694th in the world and 3,809th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,597.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
