The HOLIEST HOLY LAND of HOLYDIA is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by MOST HOLY ARCHPRIEST-GOD Holyfa with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, state-planned economy, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.702 billion Poobahs are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Education and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The VERY HOLY Church of Holydia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient holy economy, worth a remarkable 4,554 trillion MOST HOLY ARCHPRIEST-GOD Holyfa Prayers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 425,609 MOST HOLY ARCHPRIEST-GOD Holyfa Prayers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, government officials who do an offal job get smoked, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and most people think algebra is something a mermaid wears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. HOLYDIA's national animal is the HOLY but not as much as Holyfa BIRD, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The GREAT HOLYNESS.

HOLYDIA is ranked 260,265th in the world and 10th in Dauiland for Smartest Citizens, with 0.11 quips per hour.
