The Cha-Cha Dancing Penguin of Volaworand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.447 billion Volaworandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth 461 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 188,521 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the horniness of the great-horned chinstrap penguin is considered a national priority, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and sleeping on the job is recommended. Crime is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the chinstrap penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is staying warm.

Volaworand is ranked 140,471st in the world and 6,750th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.06 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
