The Greater Kingdom of Volinovia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.425 billion Volinovians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragould. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.7%.

The powerhouse Volinovian economy, worth 307 trillion Marcs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 126,613 Marcs, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and the military is plagued with unethical researchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volinovia's national animal is the Rock Ptarmigan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volinovia is ranked 20,426th in the world and 640th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,059.74 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
