I. A Short Foreword by President John Holtz


I am President John Holtz, Head of the Executive Branch of the federal government of the Conservative United States of Holy Paradise. I have held the most high honor of the Presidency for some time now, and have gained much insight about the nation of Holy Paradise. Holy Paradise is a grand nation, powerful both economically and militarily. It is a nation that is still growing rapidly, in terms of population and world influence. We are nonetheless committed to maintaining peaceful relations with the nations of the world, and promoting the dignity of people everywhere. We look forward to taking a more active role in world affairs in the near future, so as to promote peace and prosperity through diplomatic means.

To my fellow citizens, I thank you for all that you have done for this nation, and hope you will continue to help Holy Paradise become the shining city upon a hill.

To citizens and leaders of other nations, I hope that you'll consider visiting Holy Paradise someday. We encourage people to experience this nation, and maybe even give us help on how to improve it. We are always looking to better ourselves.

Thank you, and God bless the Conservative United States of Holy Paradise.

IX. Recent History

Holy Paradise has, as of late, taken a step back from the world stage, although the government does plan to get more involved with the world in the near future.

Holy Paradise has enjoyed much peace since the Holy Paradisian Civil War ended a few RL years ago. Prior to that war, Holy Paradise was mainly involved in the affairs of one Roach-Busters, a nation that has since disappeared. Holy Paradise did enjoy strong alliances with Doomingsland, Generic Empire, and other powerful nations, of which, only a few remain.

Holy Paradise has recently entered a number of disputes with various nations, mainly out of concerns that said nations were disregarding human rights.

Holy Paradise is also considering founding a new defensive alliance, but is still mostly quiet when it comes to other diplomatic affairs.
