The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Despot with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, rampant corporate plagiarism, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 24.324 billion Teufelvolkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groznyj Grad. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 16,072 trillion Osmium Standards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 660,751 Osmium Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Teufelvolk's national animal is the Mantis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fascism.

Teufelvolk is ranked 151,046th in the world and 5,734th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 19.11 Years.
