The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Reichschancellor N Radetsky with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.68 billion Galicia-Volhynians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, socially-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.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 13th in Wysteria and 9,050th in the world for Nudest, with 218 Cheeks per Square Mile.
