OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Valrem is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.618 billion Valremians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Excelsior City. The average income tax rate is 72%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

CDs are regularly copy-protected, punitive tariffs protect local industry, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown. Valrem's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the note.

Valrem is ranked 43rd in Europe and 5,463rd in the world for Best Weather, with 178 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
