Valentian Elysium

Population6.251 billion

LeaderHoly Emperor Nino II the Good


The Holy and Exalted Empire of Valentian Elysium is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Nino II the Good with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, rampant corporate plagiarism, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.251 billion Valento-Elysians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brudondam. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valentian-Elysian economy, worth 724 trillion b0Is a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,832 b0Is, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valentian Elysium's national animal is the robin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valentian Elysium is ranked 183,871st in the world and 970th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.26 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
