The Holy Island Kingdom of Holma is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Nestor Lilian II with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.442 billion Holmen are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Angel's Wait. The average income tax rate is 86.6%.

The powerhouse Holman economy, worth 606 trillion Drumms a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,361 Drumms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, King Nestor Lilian II is called 'Patches' at international summits, family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Holma's national animal is the Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Holma is ranked 275,985th in the world and 1,432nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -15.2 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
