Volshets is a growing, developing, and established nation, having been confederated on 31 August 2007 (nationally known as Slap and Tickle Day). Volshets' citizenry is primarily of Russian ethnicity. At time of writing, their religion is Jainism, however they flip-flop frequently on the matter. Its technology is advancing rapidly. Its citizens enjoy a wealth of technology within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many
despise love their government as a result. The citizens of Volshets work diligently to produce Coal and Iron as tradable resources for their nation. Volshets' foreign affairs are handled primarily by Global United Nations. When it comes to nuclear weapons Volshets will not research or develop nuclear weapons. The military of Volshets has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers . It seems as though Volshets does not allow any form of government protests, however the truth is that nobody feels compelled to speak other than to praise Volshets and its government. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first—this requires fluent Russian language skills as well as the ability to speak English with a heavy Russian accent. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. The government of Volshets will trade with any other country regardless of ethical consequences.
Volshets is a father knows best state, ruled with absolute power by Vodamir Petrov. Petrov agreed to relinquish some of this power to join Global United Nations (GUN), which required agreeing not to enter any aggressive wars or getting involved in international politics that may affect GUN's neutrality.
Outside of the conditions imposed by GUN, Petrov exerts absolute control over the nation's policy and direction. Volshets' positions on wide-ranging issues from defense to national research to commerce and beyond come from Petrov. It is then up to the Government of Volshets to codify these positions into official policies based on the needs of the nation, and organize the administration thereof. This frees Vodamir's time up for the nobler pursuits of growing extravagant sideburns and consuming large amounts of vodka.
