The Incorporated States of Vrakenalk is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 429 million Vrakenalkites 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 tiny, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gripzig. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The powerhouse Vrakenalkite economy, worth 31.8 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 74,241 Kroner, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 362,159 per year while the poor average 8,759, a ratio of 41.3 to 1.

Leader's Twitcher account is once again only used for bragging about the government's accomplishments, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Vrakenalk has designated Gripzig as its capital city, and the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces". Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Vrakenalk's national animal is the Marsh Crawlers, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vrakenalk is ranked 164,663rd in the world and 4,730th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 31.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
