The Empire of Volanowsh is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Loctar with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.952 billion Volanowshians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

Corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, Mr Happy's Funland has just been named Volanowsh's new capital, Emperor Loctar has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, and Emperor Loctar is the self-declared God of all Volanowsh. Crime is moderate. Volanowsh's national animal is the Basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Loctarian, and its currency is the Blood.

Volanowsh is ranked 315th in The Black Riders and 106,401st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -9 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
