The Commonwealth of Volkason is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 386 million 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talongaurd. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Volkasonian economy, worth 41.7 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,108 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, skateparks can be found in every city, there's a hole in the heart of every Volkasonian city, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
