The Freehold of The Valyria Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Aegon VI Blackfyre with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.798 billion Valyrians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.8%.

The powerhouse Valyrian economy, worth 750 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,329 Gold Dragons, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Dragon, no one knows how to tie a reef knot, the latest political memes depict Aegon VI Blackfyre as an overly-choreographed robot, and parents are legally not allowed to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Valyria Empire's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Dragon Gods.

The Valyria Empire is ranked 50,379th in the world and 1,842nd in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
