The Empire of Wolfenium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Karl Franz von Wolfenstein with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.204 billion Wolfeners are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolfsburg. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wolfen economy, worth a remarkable 3,984 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,204 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and millions of Wolfeners are excellent swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wolfenium's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Reformed Titanism.

Wolfenium is ranked 112,829th in the world and 8th in SW Europe for Most Pro-Market, scoring 36 on the Rand Index.
