The Republic of Ter Voland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fanatical Miku fan with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.918 billion Volandians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of GNU Helena. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ter Volandian economy, worth 651 trillion Leeks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 223,376 Leeks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,090,796 per year while the poor average 26,301, a ratio of 41.5 to 1.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, and vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Ter Volandian mussels the biggest in Neo Otaku Utopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ter Voland's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ter Voland is ranked 155,186th in the world and 1st in Neo Otaku Utopia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -15.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
