The Capital of Holtmimir is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.918 billion Ratatekkers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ratatasque economy, worth a remarkable 3,191 trillion ʝarls a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,250 ʝarls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime is totally unknown. Holtmimir's national animal is the flying squirrel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holtmimir is ranked 4,371st in the world and 1st in Ratateague for Highest Economic Output, with 3,191 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
