Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Valkyrie Islands is a massive, genial nation, ruled by a fair government with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.315 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- 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 13%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, school uniforms are compulsory, and thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break. 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.
