The Golden Orbs of Hojolandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Big Ed with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.845 billion Hojolandians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gonad Junction. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Hojolandian economy, worth 187 trillion Hojoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 101,734 Hojoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hojolandia's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Hojolandia is ranked 116,766th in the world and 222nd in NationStates for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 388.52 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
