The New Holland, officially known also as Province of New Holland is a state of the Republic of Atlion, located on the central north of the island, bordered by Valenmark to the north and northwest, Atlantia to the east, Athens to the south, and Edwardsland to the southwest.

New Holland is known for its high snowy mountains. It is the highest state in the country, along with Athens. Besides having the largest parks and nature reserves, such as Glacier National Park located in the Municipality of Glacier near the border with the State of Athens.

The New Holland economy is based on mining, especially iron, nickel and coal. But it also has a well developed agriculture with sheep breeding and dairy cattle, and tourism has increased over the past two decades.

The state is also known for its green policies implemented by successive governments of the Progressive Party.

Etymology

Due to the massive Dutch colonization, mainly from the fifteenth century, the state was called the Province of New Holland. A tribute to former County of Holland, the most politically and economically important region of the Dutch Republic. The term 'province' in the official name of the state is also a reference to the Dutch Republic, which was officially known as the Republic of the Seven United Provinces.
