The Holy Empire of Volomia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 724 million Volomians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 37.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Volomian economy, worth 43.0 trillion Slarkas a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,324 Slarkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tigers that venture near secret military bases are shipped off to prison for espionage, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, and in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volomia's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Volomia is ranked 65,594th in the world and 68th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Authoritarian, with 858.18 milliStalins.
