The United States of Hojolandia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 277 million Hojolandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 52.5%.

The Hojolandian economy, worth 13.9 trillion hojoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,292 hojoes, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and Hojolandia has designated Hojolandia City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Hojolandia is ranked 157,972nd in the world and 6,914th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.25 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
