The Industrial Worker's State of Vlenkenov is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Dmitri Semenov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.17 billion Vlenktsi live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ochiyev City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vlenskoy economy, worth 989 trillion Vlenkl's a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 121,056 Vlenkl's, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 373,212 per year while the poor average 30,314, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Astronauts take one small step for Vlenkenov and one giant step backward from confrontation, army doctors who come under attack defend themselves by using stethoscopes like nunchaku, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and taxpayer-funded government ads are promoting Brancaland as a premier filming location. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vlenkenov's national animal is the Quahog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vlenkenov is ranked 14,331st in the world and 511th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 373,212 Standard Monetary Units.
