The Meritocratic Empire of Chols Worithopia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Tobias von Menelios with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, devout population of 1.415 billion Chols Worithopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lionsgate. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chols Worithopian economy, worth 230 trillion Digital Florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 163,231 Digital Florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, there's a hole in the heart of every Chols Worithopian city, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chols Worithopia's national animal is the White Speckled Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Orthodox Catholicism.

Chols Worithopia is ranked 80,587th in the world and 2,854th in The East Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 4.18 Kickbacks Per Hour.
