The Nice Living Place of Volara is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Keevel Mansa with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.557 billion Volarans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Volaran economy, worth 801 trillion Volurs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 175,866 Volurs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, tourists visit Volara to mass-moon Volaran politicians, and landfills fill the land. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Volara's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Volara is ranked 8,923rd in the world and 132nd in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 175,866.96 Standard Monetary Units.
