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 notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.158 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Valremian economy, worth a remarkable 2,405 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 158,675 notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Valremian lands, edutainment video games are taking Valrem's students to the next level, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime is totally unknown. Valrem's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valrem is ranked 18,612th in the world and 98th in Europe for Highest Drug Use, scoring 104 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
