The Commonwealth of Valerii is a huge, economically powerful nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare, military service, and exceptional environmental beauty. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 250 million 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 Defence, Education, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 47%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valerii's national animal is the Viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Credaroo.
