The Grand Duchy of Valdr is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nicolas III - HM The Grand Duke of Valdr with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.282 billion Valdrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nord Kruna. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valdrian economy, worth 836 trillion Valdr Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 195,430 Valdr Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, there's never enough space in space, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdr's national animal is the Snow Panthera, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valdr is ranked 3,768th in the world and 188th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 132.15 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
