The Empire of Wolfenium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Karl Franz von Wolfenstein with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.04 billion Wolfeners 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolfsburg. The average income tax rate is 53.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Wolfen economy, worth a remarkable 4,818 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 218,614 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of Wolfenium, state-sanctioned torture is okay so long as there's no icky blood, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Wolfenium, and money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wolfenium's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Reformed Titanism.

Wolfenium is ranked 4,914th in the world and 1st in SW Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 30.7 Bank.
