Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Trenchant Order of The Voltarum is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leita O'Shea with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 24.358 billion Voltaru love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ohm. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Voltaru economy, worth a remarkable 4,638 trillion volts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 190,434 volts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the state auctions off combat drones to fund war reparations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Voltarum's national animal is the electric sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Voltarum is ranked 4th in Antarctica and 359th in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with 27 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
