The Free Land of Republic of Valan is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Hadris Teryfun with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 842 million Valanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snakehaven. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Republic of Valanian economy, worth 85.9 trillion Soverns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,990 Soverns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, the government funds large training centres to turn Snakes into functioning members of society, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Valan's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
