OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Valrem is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 8.499 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever 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 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 61%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, Max Barry is this year's Miss Valrem, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. 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 347th in Europe and 111,377th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
