The Monarchist Republic of Volstokn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Katja Hämäläinen II with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.358 billion Volstokish 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 Law & Order, Defense, 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 Volstokish economy, worth 198 trillion Markkaa a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 146,282 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Soumi Lutheranism.

Volstokn is ranked 145,800th in the world and 7,751st in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -2.68 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
