The Imperial Remnant of Holtklava is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Nikolaus Rikten II with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.363 billion Holtklavans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rukona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.1%.

The strong Holtklavan economy, worth 808 trillion Hankyas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 127,084 Hankyas, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the latest political memes depict Emperor Nikolaus Rikten II as an overly-choreographed robot, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and it is said that a Holtklavan woman's work is never done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holtklava's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Holtklava is ranked 133,433rd in the world and 6,793rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring zero on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
