LeaderThe glorious council of thirteen


The Grand Duchy of Holmani is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The glorious council of thirteen with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.602 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorvik. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holmanian economy, worth 513 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 197,423 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, nude art is becoming wildly popular, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime is totally unknown. Holmani's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holmani is ranked 189,202nd in the world and 5,309th in the West Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 260.82 milliStalins.
