The Empire of Holoska is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Mobiyuz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.016 billion Holoskans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frostspark City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Holoskan economy, worth a remarkable 1,221 trillion Alrints a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,348 Alrints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, and opening a bad email attachment can be a major felony. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holoska's national animal is the Frost Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holoska is ranked 5,646th in the world and 1st in Zero for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 495.41 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
