OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Valkenstein is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.291 billion Valkensteinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valkenstein's national animal is the Pheonix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Syn.

Valkenstein is ranked 10th in Zarathustra and 113,057th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,001 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
