The Antarctic Dominion of Volaworand is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 11.24 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,436 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 216,808 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Penguindogs' dominate wildlife preserves, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Volaworandian Space Agency, and many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Volaworand's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Recreational Blasphemy.

Volaworand is ranked 288,145th in the world and 5,485th in the South Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.04 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
