The Corporate Conglomerate of Valerox is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hunteth Veredon with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.636 billion Valeroxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silith. The average income tax rate is 74.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Valeroxian economy, worth a remarkable 5,810 trillion WOPS a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 397,031 WOPS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Pedants defending Hunteth Veredon observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Hunteth Veredon's rear echelons, and Valeroxians have become death, the destroyer of worlds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Valerox's national animal is the Worg-Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Manifest Corporatism.

Valerox is ranked 1,203rd in the world and 23rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 83,201.67 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
