The Holy Queendom of Volaterrae is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Bringer Of Dawn with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.669 billion Volterrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The Volaterraean economy, worth 236 trillion valars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 88,662 valars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Reddish-brown is the new black, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volaterrae's national animal is the vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Volaterrae is ranked 9,339th in the world and 1st in Purgatory for Most Cultured, scoring 112 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
