The Princely Republic of Valdutz is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bergmeister Freidrik with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.961 billion Valdutzers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schaan. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Valdutzian economy, worth 170 trillion Valdutz Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,191 Valdutz Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdutz's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pluralism.
