Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dominion of Valrem is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.882 billion Valremians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Excelsior City. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Valremian economy, worth a remarkable 2,094 trillion notes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,907 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, the road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime is totally unknown. Valrem's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valrem is ranked 176,988th in the world and 575th in Europe for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -16.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
