OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Valrem is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.483 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.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Valrem. 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 25th in Europe and 1,406th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 214 Dawkins.
