The Riverine Republic of Volgastaat is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Timur Aslan with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.154 billion Wolgadeutsches have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hohenwettinstadt. The average income tax rate is 62.1%.

The strong Wolgadeutsch economy, worth 174 trillion Wolga Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 81,170 Wolga Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters, President Timur Aslan has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Volgastaat's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Non Available.

Volgastaat is ranked 229,085th in the world and 36th in Monbalaur for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -10 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
