The Queen's State of Volksburg is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of public education and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.433 billion Volksburgians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. The average income tax rate is 7.8%.

The strong Volksburgian economy, worth 316 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 27,714 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is avowedly atheist, voting is voluntary, gambling is outlawed, and deers are considered a delicacy. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Volksburg's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Volksburg is ranked 112,364th in the world and 218th in 404 Not Found for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring zero on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
