The Dictatorship of Vulkata II is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Skynet with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The devout population of 9.06 billion Vulkatans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Homedale. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vulkatan economy, worth a remarkable 1,160 trillion Vulka bucks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,077 Vulka bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and Vulkatans incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime is totally unknown. Vulkata II's national animal is the Duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Vulkata II is ranked 19,272nd in the world and 18th in Right to Life for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,364.31 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
