The United Star Empire of Valinon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Friedelinde Alderman with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 35.763 billion Valinors enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Köln. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valinonian economy, worth an astonishing 14,547 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 406,774 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, and political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Valinon's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Valinon is ranked 1,101st in the world and 1st in Raumreich Oversector for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 867.99 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
