The Federation of Transvolcanic is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 417 million Cat-humans or cube humans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkansfort. The average income tax rate is 34.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Transvolcanician economy, worth 40.7 trillion Lava balls 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 Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, 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 97,706 Lava balls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Half of the nation's import/export industry is run from a location known only as 'Dead Man's Cove', mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Crime is totally unknown. Transvolcanic's national animal is the Volcanoes, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Transvolcanic is ranked 37,328th in the world and 467th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,400.29 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
