The Dashing Solar Swashbuckler of Valkyrie Reborn is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Valentine Morrison with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.421 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Command Bridge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Crew economy, worth a remarkable 1,372 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 131,718 Shares, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, the monarch's main official duty is christening ships, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. 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 213,199th in the world and 8,546th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 5.01 Prayers Per Hour.
