Holland was appointed to the position by H.S.H Matthew I, Sovereign Prince of Rathunis, on 27 August 2011.[1]

Early life

Milo Holland was born in the New South Wales city of Wollongong, the eldest of three brothers.

Holland grew up in the New South Wales Hunter Valley, where he attended catholic primary and secondary schools. He completed year 12 education, obtaining his Higher School Certificate, though elected not to attend university.

During his later high school years, Holland was employed in both the horse racing and fast food industries.

Following the completion of his year 12 schooling, Holland relocated to Queensland.

Business career

Holland commenced his business career as a manager in a retail chain, where he completed three separate management related qualifications concurrently. During this time, Holland also began to take an interest in the world of investment.

In 2010, Holland left his retail career to pursue self employment in the investment industry. He is presently a small-time private investor, known to be involved in derivatives trading and equities investment.

Holland is quoted as being an economic conservative, and a believer in the capitalist system.[2] He is known to be a believer in the traditional family, though still support the legalisation of same-sex marriage.[3]

Principality of Rathunis

Holland became aware of micronationalism after reading about Hutt River Province Principality early in 2011. Following a post on the MicroWiki Forum about considering founding his own micronation,[4] Holland was approached by the Sovereign Prince of Rathunis about aiding in the development of that project.

On the date of the founding of Rathunis, Holland was appointed as both Ambassador-at-large for the Principality and Aide-de-camp to the Sovereign Prince.[5] This appointment saw Holland undertake the role of being the main public representative of the Principality.

On 27 August 2011, Holland was promoted to the position of Prime Minister of Rathunis.[6] This position elevated Holland to the Prince's Council of Government, where he now deputises as chair and is the nominal Head of Government.

Holland remains the Sovereign's Aide-de-camp, and is the Principality's representative at both the Organisation of Active Micronations and Tasman-Pacific

Organisation of Active Micronations

Holland was appointed as the delegate for Rathunis upon its admission to the Organisation of Active Micronations.

In this role, Holland was the proposer of OAM Resolution 198, and is presently standing as a candidate for the position of Secretary-General in the September 2011 elections.[7]

Personal life

Outside of his professional and micronational roles, Holland is a keen golfer, equestrian, horse racing enthusiast and racing and sports punter.
