The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Reichschancellor N Radetsky with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 23.449 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.

Galicia-Volhynia's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Galicia-Volhynia's radio stations, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 147th in Wysteria and 107,220th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 12 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
