The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Reichschancellor N Radetsky with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.147 billion Galicia-Volhynians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 on the agenda. 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.

Max Barry is this year's Miss Galicia-Volhynia, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, euthanasia is legal, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. 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 50th in Wysteria and 16,618th in the world for Safest, scoring 233 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
