The Holy Matriarchy of The Blessed and Holy Land is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the High Priestess with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.666 billion Holylanders are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goddess' Retreat. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Holylandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,743 trillion faith credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 283,815 faith credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,487,254 per year while the poor average 29,024, a ratio of 51.2 to 1.

Celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, people all over The Blessed and Holy Land are dying of 'Mad Cat Disease', and sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Blessed and Holy Land's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Goddess Worship.

The Blessed and Holy Land is ranked 150,611th in the world and 5,513th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 36.43 Workforce Participation Rate.
