Valentian Elysium

Population3.995 billion

LeaderHoly Emperor Nino II the Good


The Holy and Exalted Empire of Valentian Elysium is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Nino II the Good with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.995 billion Valento-Elysians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brudondam. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Valentian-Elysian economy, worth 448 trillion b0Is a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,314 b0Is, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced, and a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valentian Elysium's national animal is the robin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Valentian Elysium is ranked 10,820th in the world and 191st in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 89.75 on the Human Development Index.
