Uncle Val

The Watchfires of Uncle Val is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 20.058 billion Uncle Valians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uncle Valian economy, worth a remarkable 2,218 trillion $$s a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,595 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uncle Val's national animal is the ^-^, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Uncle Val is ranked 22,725th in the world and 1st in Conquered and Liberated Regions of UNAF for Most Influential, scoring 2,002 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
