The Republic of Holocovoy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jozias Lazar with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.162 billion Holocovans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rava-nad-Ruka. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Holocovar economy, worth 77.3 trillion Holocovar Denars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 35,734 Holocovar Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit", and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holocovoy's national animal is the Holocovar Vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Holocovoy is ranked 196,233rd in the world and 45th in Niamark for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -48.01 on the Hayek Index.
