The Holy Blue Imperial Dominion of Voltrovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Imperial Majesty Talis III Maronyr with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 13.379 billion Voltrovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maltrovis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Voltrovian economy, worth a remarkable 2,323 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,642 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, disputed territories across Greater Mercateria are being claimed by Voltrovian college students, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voltrovia's national animal is the Eagle with Sword and Laurel, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Silvaquilism.

Voltrovia is ranked 7,802nd in the world and 1st in Greater Mercateria for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,757.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
