The Constitutional Monarchy of Volirum is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Smith with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.961 billion Volirus love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Voliruman economy, worth 352 trillion Euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,899 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, the government spends twice its healthcare budget on replacing stolen pens, religious education is a new government priority, and Prime Minister Smith claims to be the epitome of family values. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volirum's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dutch Reformed Church.

Volirum is ranked 158,832nd in the world and 109th in New West Indies for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 1.18 Missed References Per Hour.
