The Commonwealth of Volkason is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.659 billion Volkasonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talongaurd. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volkasonian economy, worth 238 trillion Talons a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,720 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is infamous for its mass graves of discarded robots, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volkason's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Primordial Dragon Asha.

Volkason is ranked 19,543rd in the world and 308th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,292.01 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
