The Very Volatile Vampire of Valtarre is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Vampire King with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 19.317 billion victims are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hideout. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped malicious economy, worth 374 trillion blood drops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 19,404 blood drops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Valtarre Blood Tithe, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Valtarre's national animal is the target, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valtarre is ranked 251,917th in the world and 225th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Fattest Citizens, with 7.12 Obesity Rate.
