The Voluntarist Lands of Violan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Professor Bernardo De La Paz with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.047 billion Violanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catoni. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Violanian economy, worth an astonishing 10,137 trillion gold denarii a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 374,821 gold denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,096,599 per year while the poor average 101,112, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, disaster victims are viewed with disdain, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, and politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with gold denarii. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Violan's national animal is the rattlesnake, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Violan is ranked 245,109th in the world and 31st in Free Market Federation for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.48 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
