Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Varangian Kingdom of Galicia-Volhynia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Reichschancellor Nadia Petrova with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 28.919 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.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. 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 14,024 trillion Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 484,948 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trespassers often find themselves impaled by crossbow bolts, the tenet of free speech is held dear, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. 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 7,249th in the world and 33rd in Wysteria for Largest Black Market, with 37.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
