The Epoch of Vorela is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Penelope Nurmonka with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.036 billion Vorelese are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sterlin. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vorelese economy, worth a remarkable 1,397 trillion Roos a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,899 Roos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos. Crime is totally unknown. Vorela's national animal is the Slasang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vorela is ranked 599th in the world and 1st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,360.89 Tourists Per Hour.
