The Kingdom of Votri is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Agrippina VII with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 948 million Votrians 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scholastica. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Votrian economy, worth 35.6 trillion Votis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,539 Votis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Agrippina VII sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, Agrippina VII has just been declared ruler of Votri in an international press conference, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and the government has been criticized for giving away Votri's territory to anyone who claims it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votri's national animal is the Black Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Votri is ranked 28,734th in the world and 931st in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 85.66 Years.
