Valkyron Union

Population6.52 billion



The People's Republic of Valkyron Union is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.52 billion Valkyron Unionians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming The Valkyron Union economy, worth 557 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,564 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valkyron Union's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valkyron Union is ranked 285,772nd in the world and 6,605th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -208.27 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
