The Grand Duchy of Holmani is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The glorious council of thirteen with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.648 billion Holmanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorvik. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holmanian economy, worth 522 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 impressive 197,344 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", students do more community service than homework, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry. Crime is totally unknown. Holmani's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Holmani is ranked 4,436th in the world and 105th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 140,072.3 Standard Monetary Units.
