The Imperium of Valdonia01 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Martel with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.239 billion Valdonians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valdonian City. The average income tax rate is 53.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Valdonia01ian economy, worth 133 trillion Sols a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,370 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Valdonia01ian Space Agency, and the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdonia01's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valdonia01 is ranked 66,629th in the world and 21st in The Iron Confederacy for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 251.62 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
