Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with a fair hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.36 billion Valenairians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St George. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valenairian economy, worth 499 trillion Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 211,503 Florins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,510,633 per year while the poor average 9,704, a ratio of 155 to 1.

Emigration to countries with labor laws is all the rage, most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valenair's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Valenairian Byzantine Catholics.

Valenair is ranked 149,732nd in the world and 7,788th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 6.59 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
