Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mikhail Vruchkin with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.376 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.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novgorod. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Galicia-Volhynian economy, worth an astonishing 11,633 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 477,251 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, the nation leads Wysteria in per capita stalking, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Galicia-Volhynia's national animal is the Merlion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Varangian Orthodoxism.

Galicia-Volhynia is ranked 156th in Wysteria and 142,837th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -776 Smiles Per Hour (net).
