The Dominion of Teufelvolk is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Despot with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 24.868 billion Teufelvolkians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groznyj Grad. The average income tax rate is 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Teufelvolkian economy, worth an astonishing 16,315 trillion Osmium Standards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is a breathtaking 656,085 Osmium Standards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, saying "don't do anything that The Despot wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Teufelvolk's national animal is the Mantis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fascism.

Teufelvolk is ranked 169,154th in the world and 6,877th in the Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 1.34 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
