The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Despot with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, enslaved workforce, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.83 billion Teufelvolkians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groznyj Grad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 12,898 trillion Osmium Standards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 619,229 Osmium Standards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,211,377 per year while the poor average 124,599, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Teufelvolk's mid-life crisis, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Teufelvolk's national animal is the Mantis, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fascism.

Teufelvolk is ranked 168,743rd in the world and 7,215th in the Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 6.14 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
