LeaderDirector Johnathan Schneider


The United Cantons of Valtrona is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Director Johnathan Schneider with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.103 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, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhina. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valtronan economy, worth a remarkable 1,246 trillion Yakkinas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 204,183 Yakkinas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Valtronan officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime is well under control. Valtrona's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Valtrona is ranked 11,894th in the world and 84th in Europe for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,937.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
