The Tsaral Realm of Volstokn is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Tsarina Katja Hämäläinen II with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.003 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volkoneimi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkish economy, worth a remarkable 1,152 trillion Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,928 Markkaa, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 709,392 per year while the poor average 36,603, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

Weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, and vacationing Volkish expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volstokn's national animal is the Maned Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Suomi Lutheranism.

Volstokn is ranked 55,663rd in the world and 2,635th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 57.67 on the Rand Index.
