The Holy Red Democracy of Transvolcanic is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lasagna with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.785 billion Transvolcanic peoples hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkansfort. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Transvolcanician economy, worth 258 trillion Boxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,661 Boxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and children who write letters to Santa Claus end up in straitjackets. Crime is totally unknown. Transvolcanic's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mfą dėł ptrē.

Transvolcanic is ranked 81,897th in the world and 1,366th in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 829 billion Standard Monetary Units.
