The Grand Duchy of Holmani is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The glorious council of thirteen with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.856 billion Holmanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorvik. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holmanian economy, worth 832 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 216,002 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Holmani, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime is totally unknown. Holmani's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holmani is ranked 10,653rd in the world and 248th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 211 Meters Of Sunlight.
