Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Most Serene Republic of Holenger is a huge, safe nation, ruled by William Robrecht with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 984 million Holengers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Habsden. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holengerian economy, worth 116 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 118,322 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The countryside is shrouded by wind farms, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holenger's national animal is the Allosaurus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Holenger is ranked 223,202nd in the world and 9,384th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -6.93 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
