Woryand Voltarium

Population1.014 billion


The Republic of Woryand Voltarium is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.014 billion Woryand Voltariumians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Public Transport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The powerhouse Woryand Voltariumian economy, worth 81.0 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 79,909 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 298,655 per year while the poor average 14,974, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, and Woryand Voltarium has designated Woryand Voltarium City as its capital city. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Woryand Voltarium's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Woryand Voltarium is ranked 80,334th in the world and 3,702nd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 81.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
