The Dashing Solar Swashbuckler of Valkyrie Reborn is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Valentine Morrison with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.278 billion Privateers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Command Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Crew economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 trillion Shares a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 134,042 Shares, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 381,053 per year while the poor average 37,641, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

It's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast, Captain Valentine Morrison's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, the navy's new flotilla is gonna be a thrilla, and enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valkyrie Reborn's national animal is the Space-Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Cthulhu.

Valkyrie Reborn is ranked 207,337th in the world and 23rd in Warzone Airspace for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 138.27 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
