The Theocratic Elective Monarchy of Valticon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Saint Nicholas with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.618 billion Swiss Guard enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 3.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Swiss Guard economy, worth 724 trillion Crosses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,379 Crosses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, parents are legally not allowed to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Swiss Guard beaches, and Swiss Guard police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime is relatively low. Valticon's national animal is the Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Valticon is ranked 5,406th in the world and 261st in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 489.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
