The Unassailable Logic of Planet Vulkan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by T'Pau with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 2.438 billion Vulcanians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ShiKahr. The average income tax rate is 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Vulcanian economy, worth 100 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 41,132 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, and Planet Vulkan's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Planet Vulkan's national animal is the Sehlat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Planet Vulkan is ranked 17,395th in the world and 3rd in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,434.63 Tourists Per Hour.
