The Jingoistic Kingdom of Volinovia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.417 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragould. The average income tax rate is 17.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Volinovian economy, worth 457 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 common. Average income is an impressive 103,628 Marcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, the tenet of free speech is held dear, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, and the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers. 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 64,606th in the world and 2,020th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,412.21 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
