The Holy region of VoVoDoCo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Konkin with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.87 billion VoVoDoCoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SilkMilk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient VoVoDoCoan economy, worth 532 trillion BitCoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 185,681 BitCoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 708,483 per year while the poor average 33,666, a ratio of 21.0 to 1.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. VoVoDoCo's national animal is the Spotted Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Individualism.

VoVoDoCo is ranked 8,195th in the world and 1st in VoVoDoCoan Multiverse for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 422.93 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
