The Adorable Other Penguin DC of Volaworand is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.024 billion Volaworandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,960 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 217,218 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

T-shirts displaying a photo of Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan performing the Full-Monty are selling out, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Recreational Blasphemy.

Volaworand is ranked 226,149th in the world and 11,118th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6.52 on the Hayek Index.
