Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Reichschancellor Nadia Petrova with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 29.416 billion Galicia-Volhynians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy 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 14,345 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 487,660 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, billions of Kronor are being blown on orbital weapons development, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, and the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies. 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 198th in the world and 18th in Wysteria for Fattest Citizens, with 89.24 Obesity Rate.
