The Greater Kingdom of Volinovia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.466 billion Volinovians 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragould. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.3%.

The powerhouse Volinovian economy, worth 313 trillion Marcs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,156 Marcs, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, the military is plagued with unethical researchers, and the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volinovia's national animal is the Rock Ptarmigan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volinovia is ranked 155,486th in the world and 7,056th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.9 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
