Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.55 billion Votakim 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 enormous 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 2,719 trillion Votak kronor 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 186,891 Votak kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime Minister Lana Hayashi spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and the government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong. Crime 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 215,084th in the world and 8,960th in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,614.36 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
