The Grand Duchy of Valdutz is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 738 million 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schaan. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Valdutzian economy, worth 62.1 trillion Valdutz Marks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,162 Valdutz Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's no representation without taxation, most ambassadors from Valdutz retire only a few years after being appointed, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. Crime, especially youth-related, 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.

Valdutz is ranked 38,574th in the world and 1,385th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
