The United Cantons of Valtrona is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Director Alex Kovich with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.915 billion Valtronans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhina. The average income tax rate is 27.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Valtronan economy, worth 355 trillion Yakkinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 185,387 Yakkinas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Valtrona's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Valtrona is ranked 9,439th in the world and 26th in Wintreath for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,021.78 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
