The Libertarian Island State of VoVoDoCo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Konkin with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.32 billion VoVoDoCoans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VaVaDaCa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient VoVoDoCoan economy, worth 965 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 223,427 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, and corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense. Crime is totally unknown. VoVoDoCo's national animal is the Zebra Mantis Shrimp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Individualism.

VoVoDoCo is ranked 158,605th in the world and 1st in VoVoDoCoan Multiverse for Most Devout, with 3.4 Prayers Per Hour.
