The Grand Empire of Valve is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gabe Newell with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 23.288 billion Valvedrones have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steam Store. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Valvedrone economy, worth a remarkable 1,578 trillion CSGO Skins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 67,771 CSGO Skins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Valve is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valve's national animal is the Freeman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gabenism.

Valve is ranked 274,392nd in the world and 188th in Portugal for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
