Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Volanowsh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Loctar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.095 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The very strong Volanowshian economy, worth 731 trillion Bloods a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 72,461 Bloods, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 300,631 per year while the poor average 11,446, a ratio of 26.3 to 1.

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, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Volanowsh's national animal is the Basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Loctarian.

Volanowsh is ranked 165,409th in the world and 140th in Geopolity for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 6.04 Effective Tax Rate.
