The Imperial Kingdom of Volinovia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.013 billion Volinovians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragould. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.6%.

The powerhouse Volinovian economy, worth 384 trillion Marcs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,759 Marcs, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, war vets look after war animals, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volinovia's national animal is the Road Runner, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volinovia is ranked 133,440th in the world and 5,714th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.54 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
