The People's Republic of Volftyr is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 2.399 billion Volftyrians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Volftyrian economy, worth 16.2 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 6,741 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, cigarettes are dead-cheap, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volftyr's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Volftyr is ranked 272,447th in the world and 47th in Noneuropean Union for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 0.75 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
