The Incorporated States of Vrakenalk is a tiny, orderly nation, notable for its feral children, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7 million Vrakenalkites are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The thriving Vrakenalkite economy, worth 467 billion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 66,718 Kroner, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 328,541 per year while the poor average 7,729, a ratio of 42.5 to 1.

Taxi drivers seem less xenophobic these days, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Vrakenalk's national animal is the Marsh Crawlers, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Vrakenalk is ranked 59,871st in the world and 1,781st in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.8 Bank.
