The ❤☑Auphelia☑Nippon Dominion of Volaworand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.363 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth 209 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,389 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, helicopter parenting is on the rise, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the chinstrap penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Volaworand is ranked 10,569th in the world and 315th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 111 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
