Isla Valeria

Population204 million

The Republic of Isla Valeria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 204 million Isla Valerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.4%.

The Isla Valerian economy, worth 10.7 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 52,624 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

A rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, most dollar coins are riddled with bite marks, and the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Isla Valeria's national animal is the Panda Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Isla Valeria is ranked 99,831st in the world and 4,078th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
