LeaderThe glorious council of thirteen


The Grand Duchy of Holmani is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The glorious council of thirteen with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 3.568 billion Holmanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorvik. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holmanian economy, worth 750 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 210,355 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-guilder mansions. Crime is totally unknown. Holmani's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holmani is ranked 106,898th in the world and 788th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 406 billion Standard Monetary Units.
