The Glorious Federation of Communist Volkstrad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Valko Markov with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 14.272 billion Volkstradis are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azarod. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkstradi economy, worth a remarkable 3,071 trillion Volkstradi Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 215,242 Volkstradi Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign musicians that Chairman Valko Markov dislikes are turned away at the border, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Communist Volkstrad's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Communist Volkstrad is ranked 197,767th in the world and 11th in Aeterna Publicae for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.63 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
