The Socialist Republic of Volac is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sayenko with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.472 billion Volacks are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Austeria. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Volacian economy, worth a remarkable 1,005 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,377 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volac's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

Volac is ranked 7,872nd in the world and 398th in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 94.82 Atheism Rate.
