The Republic of Volt2 is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 767 million Volt2ians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The strong Volt2ian economy, worth 37.8 trillion Bolts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 49,322 Bolts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 317,890 per year while the poor average 3,091, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Volt2's national animal is the Spark.

Volt2 is ranked 17,121st in the world and 57th in Lily for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,503.1 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
