The Theocratic Elective Monarchy of Valticon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Saint Nicholas with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.071 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 605 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 impressive 197,028 Crosses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Bisons and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and ratings for schools' curricula range from 'Pure as the Driven Snow' to 'Late Night TV'. 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 13,454th in the world and 741st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 81.35 on the Human Development Index.
