Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Empire of Valrifell is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by First Consul Mikel Kéndŕgne with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.569 billion Valrishmen hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunskurth. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valrish economy, worth a remarkable 1,485 trillion Krownes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,330 Krownes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Dunskurth. Crime is totally unknown. Valrifell's national animal is the Blood Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Space Christianity.

Valrifell is ranked 6,568th in the world and 9th in The New Inquisition for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 66.46 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
