The Commonwealth of Volkason is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 418 million 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talongaurd. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Volkasonian economy, worth 44.0 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,159 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and the Volkasonian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Volkason is ranked 169,852nd in the world and 4,917th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -129.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
