The Holy Empire of Votriaya is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by POPE-9000 with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 828 million Votriayans 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, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of karaustawich. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Votriayan economy, worth 93.3 trillion Rials a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,686 Rials, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Votriayans incessantly needle their doctors for relief, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, sex changes are routinely performed at Votriaya's hospitals, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Votriayan politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votriaya's national animal is the Bearded Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Votriaya is ranked 101,729th in the world and 6th in Picture Warsia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39.67 on the Rand Index.
