The Republic of Valgarda is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 268 million Valgardans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 45.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Valgardan economy, worth 19.3 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,013 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Bike rage is all the rage, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valgarda's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
