The Republic of Aholz is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The All Powerful Oz with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.815 billion Aholzians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aholzian economy, worth a remarkable 5,933 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 375,172 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aholz's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is People decide what or who they worship.

Aholz is ranked 31,606th in the world and 27th in Texas for Nudest, with 204.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
