The Industrial Worker's State of Vlenkenov is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Dmitri Semenov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.818 billion Vlenktsi hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, 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. The average income tax rate is 3.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vlenskoy economy, worth a remarkable 1,273 trillion Vlenkl's 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Gambling, Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 117,728 Vlenkl's, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

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 15,832nd in the world and 292nd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 222.25 cheeks per square mile.
