Portia Valenti

Population10.475 billion


The Queen's State of Portia Valenti is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its burgeoning deer population. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.475 billion Portia Valentians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Portia Valentian economy, worth 207 trillion betales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 19,832 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portia Valenti's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Portia Valenti is ranked 145,175th in the world and 7th in Libertaria for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 25 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
