The Armed Republic of Valshire is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 654 million Valshireans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blunton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Valshirean economy, worth 69.4 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,157 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.
The song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Valshire' is a smash hit, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valshire's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
