Nova Hollandia

Population32.291 billion

LeaderWilliam III


The United Provinces of Nova Hollandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by William III with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, smutty television, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.291 billion Nova Hollandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Batavia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Hollandian economy, worth an astonishing 23,003 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 712,393 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Nova Hollandia's national animal is the duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Nova Hollandia is ranked 182nd in the world and 5th in Europe for Rudest Citizens, with 638.33 Insults Per Minute.
