The Parliamentary Democracy of Springhollow is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister TM with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.155 billion citizens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ottawa. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Springhollowian economy, worth 202 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,103 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Springhollow's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is atheism.

Springhollow is ranked 9,289th in the world and 298th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,188 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
