The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Reichschancellor N Radetsky with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.326 billion Galicia-Volhynians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novgorod. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Galicia-Volhynia's radio stations, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Galicia-Volhynia's national animal is the Merlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Varangian Orthodoxism, and its currency is the Krona.

Galicia-Volhynia is ranked 18th in Wysteria and 555th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 347 Dawkins.
