OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Valkyrie Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the People with a fair hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.446 billion Valkyrians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 45%, 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.

Valkyrie Islands's market has been colonised by the corporations of rich countries, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons'. 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 fé.

Valkyrie Islands is ranked 3,155th in The North Pacific and 77,849th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 45 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
