Karl Holm was highly regarded politician in Sweden, former party president of Democrats of New Sweden and Finance minister of Sweden. Earlier in life, he represented Democrats of New Sweden in politics and later, until the end of his career, he was a member of Flashback Sweden.

Karl Holm was Press director of the newspaper The apathy has the word with irregular publications'.

Karl Holm was banned on January 21, 2009, due to exploiting the gold bug, printing Icon-gold.gif 108 000 GOLD. Karl Holm accepted his loss and created a new account - Kalle Holm.

eRepublik BETA

At the early evening of June 9th 2008, Karl Holm was born. A couple of days old he managed to buy a cheap moving company with gold collected from friend invitations. He named the company Holms Far och Flyg and tried to run it as long as he could. However, the company was doomed from the very beginning and he managed to sell it with a minor profit before the company went bankrupt. With that experience in mind, Karl Holm decided to put his economic ambitions on hold until he'd got a better understanding of the market in eRepublik.

Instead, he got involved in the local politics via Democrats of New Sweden. Soon he advanced inside the party and got a seat in the Congress on July 1, 2008.

On July 9, 2008, Karl Holm was announced finance minister of Sweden[1].

On July 29, 2008, DNS's party leader Leon Pong resigned his position in the advantage of Karl Holm who held this position only for a short time until DKN won the August party elections. However, Karl Holm was elected for party president on September 10, 2008. Karl Holm maintained his position for just 10 days until he decided to resign from DNS due to improper co-workers and members[2][3].

After that he joined Flashback Sweden on the 20th September 2008, since he felt he wanted to stay in politics, just not representing DNS though.

eRepublik V1

Shortly after V1 was introduced Karl Holm decided to drop out of politics and focus more on managing companies. On the 18th of October, he bought his first company. With the thought of working his way up all from the bottom, he bought a Q1 housing company. From there he'll analyse the current market and see where the profit can be made. If Sweden gets its well deserved high resource regions he planned to create a company there.

Later on that day he also announced that he'd stay in politics for at least a month due to the ongoing economical crisis throughout the New World.

On October 29, 2008, Karl Holm announced his wish to resign from the post as finance minister of Sweden. The 5th of November he resigned in favour of micke_e. Karl Holm is now an ordinary congressman and a proud member of the joint-stock corporation Northern Corporation Group's board of directors.

It is also worth mentioning that he was General manager of Swedish Dominion organization at the end of 2008.

The gold bug and the ban

In mid-January a gold bug was revealed. Karl Holm quickly got in contact with one of the main exploiters after an article about it had been published in international media, and minutes later he'd copied exactly Icon-gold.gif 108 000 GOLD. Many asked him why, he was already very rich and he had a respectable reputation. His answer was simple: I was bored and I am extremely curious by nature, I had to try it out, and I had to exaggerate to prove that I wasn't out for the money. A few days earlier he'd published an article where he said he intended to quit, but he was persuaded to continue even though he experienced a period of boredom. 3 days after the ban, the 21st of January 2009 Karl Holm was permanently banned. He soon created Kalle Holm, his new account, and started fresh.
