Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Dominion of Valrem is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.135 billion Valremians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Excelsior City. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Valremian economy, worth 969 trillion notes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,079 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime is totally unknown. Valrem's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valrem is ranked 28th in Europe and 1,224th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 14 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
