Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dominion of Valrem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Cole Relander with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.645 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, liberal, 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 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Valremian economy, worth a remarkable 2,517 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 common. Average income is an impressive 160,924 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and carefully-staged grief is displayed by Cole Relander after national disasters. Crime is totally unknown. Valrem's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valrem is ranked 125,905th in the world and 742nd in Europe for Fattest Citizens, with 7.77 Obesity Rate.
