The Monarchist Republic of Volstokn is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 823 million Volstoknians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aland Isles. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Volstoknian economy, worth 99.3 trillion Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 120,684 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a hole in the heart of every Volstoknian city, gun regulations are so strict even staple guns and hot glue guns are illegal, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese. 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 Hairy Nosed Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Volstokn is ranked 54,587th in the world and 3,034th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 96.75 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
