The Stratocracy of Volstokn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cozak Annikki Kärkkäinen I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.78 billion Volkish are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovaniemi. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkish economy, worth 450 trillion Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 161,943 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, and major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volstokn's national animal is the Maned Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Suomi Lutheranism.

Volstokn is ranked 21,516th in the world and 859th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 280,673.45 Standard Monetary Units.
