The Clad in Gold Republic of Valrknut is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Riders with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, disturbing lack of elderly people, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.762 billion Valrutians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montemare. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Valrutian economy, worth an astonishing 16,813 trillion St Johns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 738,677 St Johns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,867,554 per year while the poor average 130,258, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, Winged Lynx is one of the most popular forenames in Valrknut, and diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Valrknut's national animal is the Winged Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Nyarlathotep.

Valrknut is ranked 138th in the world and 1st in Ancient Epic League of Epicness for Most Avoided, scoring 1,597.09 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
