The Jingoistic Kingdom of Volinovia is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.436 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 relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragould. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Volinovian economy, worth 482 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 common. Average income is an impressive 108,744 Marcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, military training in Volinovia emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. 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 Road Runner, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volinovia is ranked 176,303rd in the world and 6,112th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 440.35 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
