The Dictatorship of Valkerus is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.202 billion Valkerusians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Valkerusian economy, worth 175 trillion crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. Average income is 54,680 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, Valkerusian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valkerus's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valkerus is ranked 169,718th in the world and 7,835th in The East Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 66.9 Workforce Participation Rate.
