The Community of Kholdrumvor is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.791 billion Kholdrumvorians 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 medium-sized, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Spirituality, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.1%.

The thriving Kholdrumvorian economy, worth 363 trillion Onsks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 28,433 Onsks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 86,859 per year while the poor average 7,214, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Crime is a problem. Kholdrumvor's national animal is the Dragon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Kholdrumvor is ranked 100,024th in the world and 169th in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,407.23 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
