The Dominion of Valrem is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.77 billion Valremians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Excelsior City. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Valremian economy, worth a remarkable 2,814 trillion notes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,856 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, Cole Relander's Twitcher account is typically used to share wolf memes rather than government policy, and restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics. Crime is totally unknown. Valrem's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
