The Princely Republic of Valdutz is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bergmeister Freidrik with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.009 billion Valdutzers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schaan. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Valdutzian economy, worth 173 trillion Valdutz Marks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,405 Valdutz Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Valdutz. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valdutz's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pluralism.

Valdutz is ranked 9,986th in the world and 321st in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,683.56 Tourists Per Hour.
