The Blank of Transvolcanic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lasagna with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.241 billion Transvolcanic peoples enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkansfort. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Transvolcanician economy, worth 334 trillion Boxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 149,086 Boxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, and fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government. Crime is totally unknown. Transvolcanic's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mfą dėł ptrē.

Transvolcanic is ranked 204,450th in the world and 848th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.55 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
