The Armed Republic of Volsar is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Old Man in the Boat with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 1.622 billion Volsarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Pit. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volsarian economy, worth 220 trillion Dolsars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 136,054 Dolsars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, third world countries are rich in "I Love The Pit" t-shirts, all the playground's a stage for Volsarian schoolchildren, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volsar's national animal is the Prairie Dogs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volsar is ranked 35,837th in the world and 1,084th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,708.66 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
