The Commonwealth of Volkason is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.829 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talongaurd. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volkasonian economy, worth 476 trillion Talons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,433 Talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A popular phrase is "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we eat, drink and be merry some more", thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise, escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', and the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 231,867th in the world and 6,329th in the West Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.07 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
