The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Despot with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.463 billion Teufelvolkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 8.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 16,841 trillion Osmium Standards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 636,403 Osmium Standards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, and people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers. 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 15th in the world and 2nd in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 31,806.71 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
