The United Star Empire of Valinon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Friedelinde Alderman with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 38.752 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 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 15,566 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 401,703 Reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Political cartoons depicting Empress Friedelinde Alderman's face on a lion's buttocks are selling like hotcakes, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving", and Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case. 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 241,731st in the world and 4th in Raumreich Oversector for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -41.95 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
