The United Socialist States of Kolda is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 248 million Koldans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Koldan economy, worth 7.28 trillion Markons a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,367 Markons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Markons treacle machine, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kolda's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kolda is ranked 154,067th in the world and 119th in International Democratic Union for Most Developed, scoring 52.77 on the Human Development Index.
