The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.191 billion Votakim are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korin. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 1,901 trillion Votak dinars 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,574 Votak dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votak Matim's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Votak Matim is ranked 4,606th in the world and 234th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.2 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
