The Sultanate of West Volityn is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 387 million West Volitynians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The very strong West Volitynian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Volis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 67,193 Volis, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 388,595 per year while the poor average 5,535, a ratio of 70.2 to 1.

The local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, governments opposing West Volityn are beset by rebels, and the nation's poor can be seen scavenging trash bins for used coffee grounds. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. West Volityn's national animal is the Volityn Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

West Volityn is ranked 125,970th in the world and 4,667th in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 610.89 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
