Valkyron Union

Population1.555 billion



The People's Republic of Valkyron Union is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Praetor with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.555 billion Valkyron Unionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shangri-La. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming The Valkyron Union economy, worth 130 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 83,641 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valkyron Union's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valkyron Union is ranked 71,155th in the world and 1,430th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1.22 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
