The Big Sky Country of Ter Voland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Farnetus with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.623 billion Vōlāndī are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of GNU Helena. The average income tax rate is 12.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Vōlāndus economy, worth a remarkable 1,940 trillion Negis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 345,085 Negis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, when you fly on Air Ter Voland you win a seat or you die, pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, and Vōlāndus police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ter Voland's national animal is the Komodo Draco, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Buddhismus.

Ter Voland is ranked 69,871st in the world and 3rd in Neo Otaku Utopia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 85.8 on the Hayek Index.
