The Republic of Holocovoy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jozias Lazar with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 3.434 billion Holokovanci are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rava-nad-Ruka. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Holokovan economy, worth 130 trillion Ovcas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 37,947 Ovcas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, grim instructresses lead the unwillingly impregnated in chants of "it's all my fault" and "blessed be the fruit", droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and research grant proposals read like political diatribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holocovoy's national animal is the Holokovan Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lucianism.

Holocovoy is ranked 16,042nd in the world and 6th in Niamark for Lowest Crime Rates, with 85.57 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
