Valkyron Union

Population2.789 billion



The People's Republic of Valkyron Union is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.789 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 Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming The Valkyron Union economy, worth 233 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. Average income is 83,696 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 210,308th in the world and 7,443rd in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.63 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
