The State of Holland Capes is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 14.353 billion Holland Capesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Holland Capesian economy, worth 197 trillion betales 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 Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 13,738 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, elections have been outlawed, and Holland Capes has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holland Capes's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
