The Republic of Vorrian is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 648 million Vorrianians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vorrianian economy, worth 3.75 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Soda Sales. Average income is 5,783 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff', war vets look after war animals, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vorrian's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vorrian is ranked 189,668th in the world and 6,389th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26.01 on the Hayek Index.
