The Corporate Dystopia of Valerox is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hunteth Veredon with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.247 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, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silith. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Valeroxian economy, worth a remarkable 3,949 trillion Credits 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 385,413 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,719,844 per year while the poor average 18,407, a ratio of 147 to 1.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, crooks and people with too many kids are being kicked out of the country, many of the country's largest dumps can be seen from space, and only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations. 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 Consumer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Gearian Faith.

Valerox is ranked 207,247th in the world and 412th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Longest Average Lifespans, with 29.8 Years.
