The Free Land of VoyKovie is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Councilists with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.784 billion Voykovians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Voykovian economy, worth 855 trillion goods and serviceses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,773 goods and serviceses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the wreckages of bombed planes that litter VoyKovie are highly popular tourist destinations, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime is totally unknown. VoyKovie's national animal is the plush, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Councilism.

VoyKovie is ranked 6,437th in the world and 303rd in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 91.06 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
