The Socialist Republic of Holoresk is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Holoratus Starkiller with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.702 billion people 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Holor City. The average income tax rate is 74.4%.

The very strong Holoresk economy, worth 374 trillion rubledollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,682 rubledollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holoresk's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Holorism.

Holoresk is ranked 24,477th in the world and 1st in Hatari for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.53 law-abiding acts per hour.
