The Monarchist Republic of Volstokn is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Katja Hämäläinen II with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.885 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovaniemi. The average income tax rate is 68.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Volkish economy, worth 299 trillion Markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 159,021 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, and in a fit of passion Queen Katja Hämäläinen II has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. 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 138,605th in the world and 5,763rd in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 19.77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
