The Kingdom of Holma is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Lilian with an iron fist, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.452 billion Holmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel's Wait. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Holman economy, worth 201 trillion Drumms a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 82,088 Drumms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, genetic research has been halted, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, and the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holma's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Holma is ranked 9,425th in the world and 191st in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,668.21 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
