Location: The North Pacific


The Republic of Valkyrie Islands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by a fair government with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 7.241 billion Valkyrie Islandsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falconsburg. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, private law firms are unheard of, the government is avowedly atheist, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Valkyrie Islands's national animal is the Valkyrian Goldenhorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Crest.

Valkyrie Islands is ranked 3,488th in The North Pacific and 94,263rd in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 40 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
