The Federation Eternal of Votak Matim is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.491 billion Votakim are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korin. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 trillion Votak rubles 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,062 Votak rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, Lana Hayashi is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votak Matim's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Votak Matim is ranked 104,448th in the world and 5,627th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,186.4 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
