The Technocratic Republic of Holdom is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Director Mikael Stry­ir with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.828 billion Holdomians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freylea. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holdomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,099 trillion volums a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 237,847 volums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Freylea's water use, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", posters encourage people to "Just Do It!", and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Holdom's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Holdom is ranked 137,325th in the world and 1st in Argentina Community for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.93 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
