The Cha-Cha Dancing Penguin of Volaworand is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.453 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth 462 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 impressive 188,521 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the horniness of the great-horned chinstrap penguin is considered a national priority, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and sleeping on the job is recommended. Crime is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the chinstrap penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is staying warm.

Volaworand is ranked 153,759th in the world and 7,206th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 7.16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
