The Empire of Valatian Empire is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Angelov with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.831 billion Valatian Empireans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valatia. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valatian Empirean economy, worth 263 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,126 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, the flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (Valatian Empire has found 1 easter egg), and the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Valatian Empire's national animal is the Secretary bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Valatian Empire is ranked 12,573rd in the world and 179th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,139.2 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
