Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Valkenstein is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.017 billion Valkensteiners are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valkensteiner economy, worth a remarkable 3,192 trillion Syns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 318,712 Syns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,692,210 per year while the poor average 31,712, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

90% of active duty VAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valkenstein's national animal is the Pheonix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valkenstein is ranked 6th in Zarathustra and 1,064th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 2,604.178 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
