OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Valrem is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.789 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 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. 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 51st in Europe and 9,245th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
