The Great Pacific Royal House of Nord Valdr is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Charles VII with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, avowedly heterosexual populace, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.388 billion Nord Valdrians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Duke. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.6%.

The all-consuming Nord Valdrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,695 trillion Valdr Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,629 Valdr Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,120,974 per year while the poor average 12,521, a ratio of 89.5 to 1.

The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nord Valdr's national animal is the Crowned Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nord Valdr is ranked 10,581st in the world and 3rd in Emery for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 26.24 Bank.
