The Profound Eminency of Volkarai is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ban-Di¨c MacTavish IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate population of 2.492 billion Volks enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirk Yetholm. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Volkaraian economy, worth 101 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 40,571 tasdans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, auditors are gutting every governmental department, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime is totally unknown. Volkarai's national animal is the tÓirngar˙, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volkarai is ranked 42,092nd in the world and 1,361st in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,870.43 on the Edu-tellignce« Test Score.
