The Corporate Conglomerate of Valerox is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hunteth Veredon with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.331 billion Valeroxians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silith. The average income tax rate is 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Valeroxian economy, worth a remarkable 4,785 trillion Merits 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 388,048 Merits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Reddish-brown is the new black, after every storm there's an expensive government-funded rainbow, Valerox is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and the unofficial motto of the nation's intelligence agency is "in Bont we trust". 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 Meal Inc InfiniCow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Gearian Faith.

Valerox is ranked 1,243rd in the world and 20th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 27,110.5 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
