The Meritocratic Empire of Chols Worithopia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Tobias von Menelios with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.361 billion Chols Worithopians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lionsgate. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chols Worithopian economy, worth 847 trillion Digital Florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 194,439 Digital Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chols Worithopian politics is literally a blood sport, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chols Worithopia's national animal is the White Speckled Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Orthodox Catholicism.

Chols Worithopia is ranked 214,392nd in the world and 8,754th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -272.59 on the Hayek Index.
