The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Despot with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 30.344 billion Teufelvolkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groznyj Grad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 18,755 trillion Osmium Standards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 618,105 Osmium Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Groznyj Grad Film Festival recently voted 'Teufelvolkian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the government is proud to report that ten percent of all tax revenue goes to funding suspected terrorist organizations, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Teufelvolk's national animal is the Mantis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fascism.

Teufelvolk is ranked 282nd in the world and 6th in the Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 677.08 on the Hayek Index.
