The Profound Eminency of Volkarai is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ban-Di¨c MacTavish IV with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 5.448 billion Volks enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirk Yetholm. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Volkaraian economy, worth 238 trillion tasdans a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,740 tasdans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. Crime is totally unknown. Volkarai's national animal is the tÓirngar˙, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Pantheon of the Nine Divines.

Volkarai is ranked 81,687th in the world and 3,523rd in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,079.58 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
