The Free Association of Voluntarists is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Noam Chomsky with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.39 billion Voluntarists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diogene. The average income tax rate is 20.1%.

The very strong Voluntarist economy, worth 105 trillion Bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 75,673 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Diogene, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and newspapers print only headlines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Voluntarists's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Voluntarists is ranked 114,893rd in the world and 71st in Anarchy for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3.74 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
