The Holy Imperial War Machine of Volcanislavia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Magnethands with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.288 billion Volcanislavians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maximum Security Citadel X. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Volcanislavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,673 trillion gold sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 229,609 gold sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lavish state dinners in Maximum Security Citadel X are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volcanislavia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volcanislavia is ranked 6,546th in the world and 36th in Gay for Most Developed, scoring 92.62 on the Human Development Index.
