The Union of Valerion is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overlord Valerius with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.65 billion Valerionites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valerion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Valerionic economy, worth a remarkable 7,709 trillion Denariis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 413,392 Denariis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, vaccinations are mandatory, a government program is underway to revitalize Valerion's beaches, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valerion's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valerion is ranked 135,518th in the world and 3,356th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 572.8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
