The Ethical Good LC DemonBird of Volaworand is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.092 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. The average income tax rate is 19.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth 376 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 179,820 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

A burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan has returned as a hero from a brutal campaign to conquer the local beach, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the chinstrap penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is staying warm.

Volaworand is ranked 9,152nd in the world and 191st in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
