The Socialist Experiment of Vulcanus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Aglas Doudams with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 29.085 billion Vulcanusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pielavesi. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Vulcanusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,945 trillion monies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,025 monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vulcanus's national animal is the Nanu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vulcanus is ranked 53,779th in the world and 251st in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Drug Use, scoring 77.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
