OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Valrem is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.063 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, liberal, 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 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, loans are available for students from poor families, and violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner. 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 46th in Europe and 5,513th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 23 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
