The Most Serene Republic of Valenair is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Captain-Regent Pavao Halford XII with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.031 billion Valenairians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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

The all-consuming Valenairian economy, worth 676 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,300 Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,310,421 per year while the poor average 17,775, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, the public transport system has been eliminated, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and the impoverished sick hang around outside golf clubs to beg for funding for healthcare. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 178,121st in the world and 9,784th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with -282 Meters Of Sunlight.
