The Federal Republic of Holdac is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 333 million Holdanians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.4%.

The all-consuming Holdacian economy, worth 37.3 trillion Canto Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 111,985 Canto Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 336,460 per year while the poor average 29,095, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, Leader is famed for giving great back rubs, Holdacian farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holdac's national animal is the Aurealeno Roadrunner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Holdac is ranked 41,875th in the world and 2,173rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,432.2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
