Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Valdr is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Nicolas III - HM The Grand Duke of Valdr with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avant-garde cinema, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.972 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 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valdrian economy, worth 385 trillion Valdr Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,534 Valdr Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Nord Kruna, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. 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 143,806th in the world and 7,838th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -76.88 on the Hayek Index.
