The Empire of Valorono is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tsar Abraham with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 13.741 billion Valoronians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry are also considered important, while Administration and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muscovy. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valoronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,558 trillion Valmarks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,421 Valmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valorono's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Valoronian Orthodox.

Valorono is ranked 167,029th in the world and 5,337th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
