The Kingdom of Holma is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Lilian with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.51 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Law & Order, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel's Wait. The average income tax rate is 77.5%.

The thriving Holman economy, worth 210 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 84,024 Drumms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, King Lilian shrugs in the face of growing inequalities, top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, and mostly women are seen and not heard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. 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 18,796th in the world and 291st in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 82.66 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
