Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Despot with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, prohibition of alcohol, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.219 billion Teufelvolkians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groznyj Grad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 11,269 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 586,357 Osmium Standards, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,487,990 per year while the poor average 89,136, a ratio of 27.9 to 1.

The government has the power to seize property at will, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, and petitions to the government are being used to insulate politicians' office walls. 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 576th in the world and 11th in the Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,307 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
