Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Polar Islandstates is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Iversen-Eklund with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.802 billion Valhallans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Franz Josef City. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Valhallan economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion Sols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,016 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retired racing Valhallan Terns are served truffles for breakfast, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown. Polar Islandstates's national animal is the Valhallan Tern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Polar Islandstates is ranked 33,743rd in the world and 21st in Rushmore for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,986.77 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
