The Constitutional Monarchy of Volirum is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Smith with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.511 billion Volirus love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volirumian economy, worth 310 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,512 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, the government spends twice its healthcare budget on replacing stolen pens, and religious education is a new government priority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volirum's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dutch Reformed Church.

Volirum is ranked 17,485th in the world and 9th in New West Indies for Highest Poor Incomes, with 71,543.32 Standard Monetary Units.
