|Leader||Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason|
|Faith||The Primordial Dragon Asha|
The Commonwealth of Volkason is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.681 billion Volkasonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talongaurd. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Volkasonian economy, worth 243 trillion Talons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,596 Talons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
They say that Maxymilian Falon Lucien Volkason's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volkason's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Primordial Dragon Asha.
