Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Despot with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.767 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, although Industry is 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 12,621 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 rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 638,498 Osmium Standards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,373,085 per year while the poor average 120,711, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, disputed territories across the Pacific are being claimed by Teufelvolkian college students, cute fluffy little The Despots are increasingly popular exotic pets, and Teufelvolk's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians. 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 383rd in the world and 5th in the Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
