The United Star Empire of Valinon is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Friedelinde Alderman with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 39.39 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, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. 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 15,827 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 401,826 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. 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 229,270th in the world and 4th in Raumreich Oversector for Most Inclusive, scoring 7.01 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
