The Volcen

Population3.008 billion

LeaderMotherqueen Deohlore Nanora


The Insectoid Empire of The Volcen is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Motherqueen Deohlore Nanora with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.008 billion Volcenis 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xushi. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.5%.

The very strong Volcenian economy, worth 247 trillion Gyols a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 82,356 Gyols, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 333,918 per year while the poor average 13,521, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and in a fit of passion Motherqueen Deohlore Nanora has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. The Volcen's national animal is the Cockroach, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Stariszm.

The Volcen is ranked 30,288th in the world and 892nd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 509.1119311126 Days.
