The Super Gay Antarctic Dominion of Volaworand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Acting Prime Minister Alan Duncan with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.96 billion Volaworandians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rothera. The average income tax rate is 8.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volaworandian economy, worth 976 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,846 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. 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 200,171st in the world and 8,104th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.42 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
