The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Despot with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, fear of technology, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 23.77 billion Teufelvolkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Healthcare 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. The average income tax rate is 11.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 16,256 trillion Osmium Standards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 683,911 Osmium Standards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, the logging industry is celebrating as tourists plaster Teufelvolk with trees, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, and The Despot's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. 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 170,212th in the world and 6,904th in the Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 0.64 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
