Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Penguin Corporatocracy of Volaworand is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.02 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth 610 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 amazing 202,113 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the chinstrap penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Volaworand is ranked 27,788th in the world and 791st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,455.21 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
