The Republic of Votak Matim is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chief Executive Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.256 billion Votakim 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korin. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 1,541 trillion Votak dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,768 Votak dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Votak dinars are spent to take high-quality photos of the Owl Nebula, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votak Matim's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Votak Matim is ranked 13,784th in the world and 561st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,374.08 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
