OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Valkenstein is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.956 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 on the agenda. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining.

The government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and the Federal Council of Valkenstein has been announced as the new Head of State. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Syn.

Valkenstein is ranked 6th in Zarathustra and 682nd in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
