The Armed Republic of Volsar is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Old Man in the Boat with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate population of 859 million Volsarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pit. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Volsarian economy, worth 98.6 trillion Dolsars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 114,783 Dolsars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, The Old Man in the Boat can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Volsar" at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volsar's national animal is the Prairie Dogs, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Volsar is ranked 153,502nd in the world and 5,716th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 14,118.39 Standard Monetary Units.
