The Kingdom of Volstokn is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Katja Hämäläinen II with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.908 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovaniemi. The average income tax rate is 73.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkish economy, worth 720 trillion Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 184,276 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. 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 39,568th in the world and 2,279th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 49,754.63 Standard Monetary Units.
