The Libertarian Autocracy of VoVoDoCo is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Konkin with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.864 billion VoVoDoCoans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of VaVaDaCa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.0%.

The frighteningly efficient VoVoDoCoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,508 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 257,245 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,096,160 per year while the poor average 38,821, a ratio of 28.2 to 1.

It's best to say "yes" if the arbiter asks "what are you, a moron?", getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in VoVoDoCo, dessert dishes make up the VoVoDoCoan breakfast menu, and VoVoDoCoan-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. 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 170,770th in the world and 1st in VoVoDoCoan Multiverse for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.1 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
