-Give 3 interesting facts about your nation that gives it character:

Holmbergsvania is the protector of the BFPE- (ask for info... if you want) an independent political enclave that is still part of Holmbergsvania, one that is rather eccentric, it seems. The BFPE operates some planets, but isn't in a position to make Holmbergsvania THEIR protectorate.
