The Confederacy of Valmare is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elected Admiral Curt Landolf with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed population of 1.534 billion Valmareans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosette. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valmarean economy, worth 217 trillion checks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,953 checks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valmare's national animal is the brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Valmare is ranked 17,978th in the world and 1st in New World Conglomerate for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 76.56 Workforce Participation Rate.
