LeaderThe glorious council of thirteen


The Grand Duchy of Holmani is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The glorious council of thirteen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.241 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, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorvik. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holmanian economy, worth 952 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 224,509 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Holmani, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. Crime is totally unknown. Holmani's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holmani is ranked 135,651st in the world and 2,984th in the West Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.3 Weapons Per Person.
