The Galactic Empire of Holota is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Augustus Galacticus with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.098 billion Holotas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holotapolis. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holota economy, worth 378 trillion Koronas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,410 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holota's national animal is the Killer Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anti-Religion.

Holota is ranked 8,997th in the world and 240th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,176.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
