The Glorious Federation of Communist Volkstrad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chairman Valko Markov with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 16.556 billion Volkstradis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 Healthcare. 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 3,589 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 216,837 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 6,206th in the world and 1st in Aeterna Publicae for Most Patriotic, with 54.44 flags saluted per person per day.
