Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Valkyrie Islands is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.068 billion Valkyrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Falconsburg. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valkyrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,066 trillion Fés a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,628 Fés, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, and the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Valkyrie Islands' is a smash hit. Crime is totally unknown. Valkyrie Islands's national animal is the Valkyrian Goldenhorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valkyrie Islands is ranked 69,933rd in the world and 2,674th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,467.18 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
