The Rogue Nation of Volksrealm is a massive, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.714 billion Volk are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The volkish economy, worth 244 trillion moneys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 65,775 moneys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, Volksrealm's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown. Volksrealm's national animal is the snow leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volksrealm is ranked 228,884th in the world and 431st in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -3.16 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
