Puerto Valiante

Population1.657 billion

LeaderPresident Xavier Colón


The Congressional Republic of Puerto Valiante is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Xavier Colón with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.657 billion Puerto Valianteans 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vernados. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Puerto Valiantean economy, worth 110 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,758 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, most ambassadors from Puerto Valiante retire only a few years after being appointed, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puerto Valiante's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Puerto Valiante is ranked 29,264th in the world and 1,457th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 50,779.45 Standard Monetary Units.
