The Federation of New Holten is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marco Thompson with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.161 billion Holtenaren 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Holten City. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse a Holtenaar economy, worth 495 trillion Keunedarpers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,140 Keunedarpers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Holten's national animal is the Holtic pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Deez nutz.

New Holten is ranked 183,702nd in the world and 362nd in Conch Kingdom for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
