|Leader||Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason|
|Faith||The Primordial Dragon Asha|
The Commonwealth of Volkason is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.615 billion Volkasonians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talongaurd. The average income tax rate is 76.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Volkasonian economy, worth 223 trillion Talons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,494 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements, and awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volkason's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Primordial Dragon Asha.
