The Pleasant States of New Volica is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Marian Celoso with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.107 billion New Volicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Limajla. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Volican economy, worth a remarkable 1,266 trillion lills a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,123 lills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, rumor has it that Marian Celoso has won three lotteries in a row, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Volica's national animal is the Orange Sloth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Volica is ranked 238,141st in the world and 486th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -21.63 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
