The Greater Kingdom of Volinovia is a massive, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.358 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saline. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.5%.

The powerhouse Volinovian economy, worth 164 trillion Marcs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 120,866 Marcs, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, reddish-brown is the new black, the entire entry for Volinovia in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. 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 Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Volinovia is ranked 125,838th in the world and 4,129th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 16.20073268708 Days.
