The Armed Republic of Volsar is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Old Man in the Boat with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.407 billion Volsarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pit. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volsarian economy, worth 190 trillion Dolsars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,166 Dolsars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and arbitration is mightier than the sword. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volsar's national animal is the Prairie Dogs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volsar is ranked 186,200th in the world and 4,803rd in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 63.42 Years.
