The Black Hawk of Holoratus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.511 billion black hawks are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.0%.

The all-consuming black hawk economy, worth 288 trillion regions a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,988 regions, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 419,602 per year while the poor average 22,374, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

The 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, 'Black Hawknado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, and weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holoratus's national animal is the black hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holoratus is ranked 22,442nd in the world and 39th in The Black Hawks for Best Weather, with 148 Meters Of Sunlight.
