The Imperial Island of Holm Island is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 9.847 billion Holm Islandians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Holm Islandian economy, worth 265 trillion NESES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 27,001 NESES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, organ donation is compulsory, the government is reigning in public spending, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holm Island's national animal is the NES.

Holm Island is ranked 142,425th in the world and 3rd in Great Britain and Ireland for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring zero on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
